Once you’ve rinsed the rice, pour it into the IP. If you are doing 2 cups, you’ll do 2 cups of rice and 2 cups of water. Do the rice first. Then do the salt. Pour the water in as soon as you’re ready to close the IP and begin cooking. You MUST use a normal one cup (250ml) or larger measuring cup for the water, not the “cup” that comes with the IP. That cup is too small (180ml). This recipe has to be done exactly as posted. If you alter the ratio or times you may end up with soggy rice, or crunchy rice.
