    Put a note not to mix the rice.
    Only add the rice on top after adding the water. Otherwise the “burn” message will come on and turn off the Instant Pot.

    Hi there this was created for the Instant Pot Gem. It can be made in the Instant Pot Aura and Aura Pro now.

    To make it in the pressure cooker use 1 cup rice 1 cup water and set it to high pressure for 4 minutes, allowing it to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes before releasing all remaining pressure.

    I hope this helps!

    I made mine in the IP. Easy, quick and completely delicious, already a new favourite after one meal of it!

    Ingredient variation I used: 1/4 cup of rough chopped almonds as I didn’t have any pine nuts; it worked well.

    I served it with a spoon of sour cream and quartered sour dill pickles on the side instead of tzatziki.

    This will be kept in mind as an especially good way to use a pound of ground beef and make a quick meal.

    5/5 stars, A+!

    I prepared this and thought it was wonderful. Reminded me of a persian dish I had at a restaurant. The only thing I changed was to add a little dry harissa for a touch of heat and a handful of dried currants. I served it with chopped fresh mint, cilantro and green onions. Yum!
