Video Recipe:

I keep repeating this dish very often, as mushroom and corn have such unique textures and flavors. The protein content in mushrooms and the fiber in corn make it a 'Superfood'. This is such a versatile and easy one-pot meal recipe. I’ve used mushrooms, corn. You can add other vegetables like potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and more. You can mix in scrambled eggs or use boneless chicken along with the vegetables for added protein. So many possibilities!

We love Instant Pot Mushroom Corn Rice Because It’s-

  • Gluten-free, soy-free, and nut-free recipe.
  • Ready in less than 20 Minutes.
  • It is the perfect one-pot meal.
  • It is easy to make and so flavorful.

Which Basmati Rice do I use?

          I recommend using good quality Basmati Rice/Long Grain Jasmine Rice. I have used Tilda / Royal / Daawat’s extra-long Basmati Rice which are the best brands. Every variety of rice comes out perfect and smells amazing! Aged basmati rice works very well when making pulao, or biryani.

Tips to Make Mushroom Corn Rice:

  • Use any type of mushrooms you want. I used normal button mushrooms, but you use Swiss Brown / Cremini mushrooms. 
  • Don't slice mushrooms too thin.
  • Basmati and jasmine are great here, it comes out nice and fluffy like long grain rice. 
  • I find that medium and short-grain rice is a bit sticky for my taste when cooked in pulao style.
