Easy, Quick Instant Pot Recipes for Beginners

Last week we added a new equipment to our lovely kitchen, The Instant Pot. Heard a lot of good reviews about this device, how it can be used without worrying much about the food getting overcooked.

Earlier, we had a pressure cooker that mostly households have. We decided for an upgrade to replace an old one. We bought the model: “Instant Pot Duo Nova 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker“. As we start using it, I can surely share its advantages or review it after making a couple of recipes.

To start with, here are few simple recipes that we tried in its first week of use:


First thing we tried to make were rice. Its pretty easy & quick.

  • Take 1 cup unsoaked rice.
  • Take water in 1:1 ratio.
  • IP has a default mode for rice. It takes 12 mins. (or)
  • We can also use the pressure cooking setting: 4 mins (Unsoaked, 1:1)

  • Mix the ingredients. Whisk it till its fluffy.
  • Grease the container (preferably steel). Put it on the IP steel rack.
  • IP mode: Steam, 10 mins (or)
  • IP on high pressure cooking: 4 mins
