I am sure you have heard so much about the instant pot, currently one of the hottest kitchen gadgets out there. I just got mine and I am obsessed with it. In just one week I have already made butternut squash soup, mashed potatoes and a one pot chicken and rice dish. Today I am sharing a delicious Instant pot coconut rice recipe. Coconut rice is great with stir fries, curries or by itself. We had ours with mutton curry for Sunday dinner and it was delicious.

More about the Instant Pot
The Instant Pot is an intelligent multi-cooker with 7 functions including a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker/porridge maker, sauté/browning pan, steamer, yogurt maker and stockpot warmer. The Instant Pot cooks meals faster with less energy while preserving more nutrients.
Imagine coming after home after work having forgotten to defrost your meat. With instant pot you can cook food from a frozen state with great results. If you love beans you dont have to worry about cooking them for hours, with instant pot it takes no time to cook dried beans. This is great for your pocket as dried beans are much cheaper.
My Instant Pot was from Target and it was delivered to me in less than a week which was good as I hear that sometimes you have to wait weeks to get one on other sites. The instant pot comes in different models the lux, duo, duo plus, ultra and smart. I wanted to get the smart model but could not justify the extra cost so I went with the duo model. The duo model has pretty much the same functions as the smart besides the fancy bluetooth technology.
I could go on and on about the instant pot but all I can say is I am glad I bought it. I can’t stop talking about it you would think I work for Instant Pot. I really just love it and it has made my life in the kitchen much easier. Stay tuned for more instant pot recipes!
