Measure 1 cup basmati rice.
Rinse it well atleast 2-3 times and drain it.
Place the instant pot inner pot and add the rinsed rice to it.
Measure and add water to it.I use 1(rice):2(water) cups ratio.
Mix it once.
Close with lid
Set to pressure cooker mode in high for 10 mins.
Now the instant pot has started.It takes few mins to change from ON to timer and only when then the timer is shown the actual cooking time starts.
Once the timer beeps and comes to 0, immediately release pressure manually.Once timer is 0, it automatically goes to keep warm mode.
Press the button to manually release pressure immediately after the timer goes to 0.Be careful as the steam will through the holes near so keep your hands at a safe distance.
Steam escaping..Can you see the water bubbles?
Now the steel button is in down position.Only when the steel button goes down(indicates that pressure is released) its ready to open so keep an eye.
Open and the rice is done.
Fluff it gently with a fork.
Perfectly cooked grain seperated soft rice ready!
Spread it on a place, let it cool down then use it for any recipes.
