Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 jalapeno pepper, left whole or slit open
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 inch piece ginger, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt or as required
  • 10 large white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup Basmati rice, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  1. Set Instant Pot in Saute setting. 

    When hot, add butter and let melt. Add next 5 ingredients (onion, jalapeno pepper, garlic, ginger and salt). Saute for 3-4 minutes, until it starts to get translucent. Add mshrooms and saute for 1-2 minutes. 

  2. Press cancel. Add rice, coconut milk and water, stir well. Close and lock lid, making sure valve is in sealing position. Set to Rice setting (it took 12 minutes in mine) and let cook. 

    Let it be in warm mode for 10 minutes. Then release pressure by turning valve to vent. 

    Open lid, fluff rice with a fork and serve. 

Recipe Notes

I made this recipe in an 8-quart Instant Pot (can be made in a 6-quart as well). 

Half the recipe can be made in a 3-quart Instant Pot. 

Butter is key <--- Do not sub oils. 

If you prefer not to have any spice, then add a whole jalapeño pepper or cut a thin slit for mildly spiced rice.
