  • 2 cup short grain white rice 1 cup = 220 g
  • 1 cup sweet rice glutinous = sticky
  • 1/2 cup Adzuki red beans 1/2 cup=100g
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Sorghum 1/2 cup=100g
  • 1/2 cup Millet 1/2 cup=100g
  • 1/4 cup Chickpeas 1/4 cup=50g
  • 1/4 cup Black Beans 1/4 cup=50g
  • 4 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt


  1. Measure about 1/2 cup of Adzuki red beans, Sorghum, Proso or Foxtail Millet and 1/4 cup of Chickpeas or other beans. No need to soak white rice. Change water at least 1-2 times during soaking and rinse the beans before adding to pot.

  2. Measure 2 cups short grain white rice and wash by rinsing and rubbing rice gently between your hands in water. Drain then repeat at least 2-3 times.

  3. Drain all beans and grains. Discard water.

  4. In the pot, add white rice, sweet rice, beans and grains.
  5. Add 4 1/2 cup water to pot. The general rule of thumb is to use grain to water ratio as 1:0.9. 

  6. Add about 3/4 tsp sea salt.
  7. Close lid and set to Manual High pressure 18 min. Make sure the seal is tight and everything is set correctly for pressure cooking.
  8. When rice is cooked, manually release pressure. And open and serve once fully released.
