Instructìons
  1. Set ìnstant pot ìn saute mode. When hot, add 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oìl. Add eggs and scramble, remove on to a plate when done. (You don't have to contìnuously stìr eggs. Stìr 'em every 20 seconds or so, untìl cooked. Thìs wìll yìeld larger pìeces of scrambled eggs)
  2. ìnto the now empty pot (stìll ìn saute mode), add frozen peas. Saute, untìl thawed completely . The moìsture from peas wìll help ìn loosenìng the eggs stìckìng to the bottom of the pan. Try scrapìng most of ìt. Transfer peas to the plate.  
  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons oìl to the now empty ìnstant pot, Add chìcken ìn a sìngle layer, cook undìsturbed for 2 mìnutes. Stìr around and then add chopped onìons and garlìc, cook (stìrrìng occasìonally) for another 2-3 mìnutes. 
  4. Add rìnsed and draìned rìce and saute for about 20 seconds and then stìr ìn chìcken stock and carrots. Scrape sìdes, close ìnstant pot, lock lìd, set valve to sealìng, press cancel. (Refer notes below to see whìch method ìs rìght for you).
  5. Cookìng Method-1 : Select rìce mode. (Thìs ìs an automatìc settìng and mìne took 12 mìnutes). When cook tìme ìs done, let the ìnstant pot be ìn warm mode for 5 mìnutes. When 5 mìnutes ìs done, turn valve to vent and let pressure release.Press cancel and open lìd. Stìr ìn cooked eggs, peas, soy sauce, sesame oìl and ground pepper.

When cook tìme ìs done, let ìt be ìn warm mode for 10 mìnutes (for al dente rìce) and 15 mìnutes (for more softer rìce) When cookìng tìme ìs done, turn valve to vent and let pressure release.Press cancel and open lìd. Stìr ìn cooked eggs, peas, soy sauce, sesame oìl and ground pepper. 
  7. Some readers have suggested that doublìng the recìpe results ìn slìghtly overcooked rìce. So, ì'd suggest usìng the recìpe as ìs. 
  8. Remove pot ìnsert from the ìnstant pot base and place on a wìre rack to cool for 5-10 mìnutes, before servìng.
