Sticky Rice

  • ¾ cup 150g white sticky rice
  • ¾ cup 177ml water

Thai Green Curry Sauce

  • 1 and ½ cup 375ml full-fat coconut milk (see notes)
  • ½ cup 25g loosely packed fresh cilantro
  • ½ cup 25g loosely packed fresh basil
  • 2 tablespoon 5g loosely packed fresh mint
  • 1 tablespoon 15ml lime juice
  • 2 teaspoon 10ml maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoon green curry paste
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • ½ lemongrass stalk cut into 1-inch pieces


Sticky Rice

  • Add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot liner and place the steam rack in the liner.
  • Rinse the sticky rice. In a glass bowl that can fit in the liner, combine the sticky rice with the ¾ cup of water. Place the bowl on the steam rack. Close the lid and set the valve on the "Sealed" position.
  • Pressure cook for 14 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the sauce.
  • After 14 minutes, let the pressure release naturally for 10-12 minutes. Release the remaining pressure by turning the valve to "Venting" position. You can keep the lid closed to keep the rice warm if you are not ready to serve it yet.
  • To serve, place about ⅓ cup of rice on a plate and pour the warm green curry sauce on top (or on the side). Top with some basil and mint leaves and serve immediately. You can serve this as is, or with roasted vegetables on the side.

Thai Green Curry Sauce

  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until very smooth, about 1 minute. Transfer the sauce to a saucepan and heat until warm over medium heat.


For a richer sauce, use coconut cream instead of coconut milk.
Sticky rice is best served fresh, I don't recommend reheating.
