Steamed rice is considered to be a very simple recipe, still the quality of steamed rice can vary greatly depending on your cooking method and type of rice. Ideally, in steamed rice, we want each grain to be seprate, soft and cooked perfectly. Rice grains should be fluffed, soft and not stick to each other. I have seen recips online that use Instant pot, pressure cooker and stove top methods. I personally do not use the pressure cooker method and have always used stove. Now, i have started using IP as well, since I got it. I like the conveneince of being able to put the timer and walking away. In terms of rice variety, I use brown and white long grain basmati rice only. There are several brand of basmati rice avaiable in the market. I personally like India Glate classic, which come in a golden and mahroon packing. Be cautious and Indian gate rice is also available in jute packing, but that is a different vaiety, which is a little lower grade of basmati.
