    I’ve been trying this out a few times and the rice has been too soft for my tastes still trying to perfect the cooking time

    Made it with brown and wild rice. Came out pretty good but next time i want to add seasoning to the mix. Small smount of rice got stuck on bottom but overall good.

    I tried this ratio of water to rice and the rice came out super mushy and wet. Not sure if it’s a different instantpot or something, but either the timing or the amount of water was way off for me.

    Our 1st try, so we picked brown rice from recipe book. Recipe book says manual cook for 4 minutes. We said wow, only 4 minutes. The book is WRONG. The app says 22 minutes.

    long grain or fancy brown rice requires more water.
    We followed instructions for wild rice when cooking basmati style brown rice.

    It’s the first dish I’ve tried in my instant pot and followed the instructions step by step but my rice turned out all mushy 🙁 not sure what I’m doing wrong!

    Several people said their rice turned out mushy. Is the water supposed to be measured with the measuring cup provided with the IP? In other words, is one cup of water really supposed to be only 3/4 cup?

    I cook my rice (2c rice 2.5c liquid) on high for 10 minutes, then let the natural release take over. Turns out wonderful.

    I made the recipe for brown rice according to the directions in the book that came with my pot. High pressure for 4 minutes and NPR for 10; although I didnt check it until 18 minutes. All the water was absorbed and the rice was perfectly cooked. First time using my instant pot.

    For Instant Pot Mini: This recipe would work fine as written. I changed the amount to: one (included rice cup) brown rice, half cup lentils, one and three quarter cups water; sprayed bottom of pot with EVOO, added two pats of butter; set time for 20 minutes and 10 minutes natural release. It came out slightly al dente but perfect for my taste, 22 minutes would be fine. It didn’t stick to the pot.

    The time 23 minutes are you sure its for brownrice? And for how many servings usually for 23 minutes. Because mine did not cook for 23 minutes i had to add 20 more minutes
