Rice Pudding / Kheer - Instant Pot
An Indian favorite dessert for special occasions - Rice pudding made with rice and milk infused with saffron, cardamom and assorted dried fruits.
easy, indian, instant pot
Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker
preferably small or medium grain, rinsed
(adjust to taste)
Roasted Mixed Nuts
chopped or sliced (cashews, almonds, walnut, pistachios) (optional)
Cardamom powder (Elaichi)
Add everything in the instant pot. Close lid with vent in sealing position.
Set instant pot to PORRIDGE mode for 20 minutes on high pressure. When instant pot beeps, let the pressure release naturally.
Open Instant Pot and mix well. Rice pudding is ready. Serve warm or chilled.
If needed, to get the desired consistency, cook on SAUTE mode for 2-3 mins. Or add more milk, mix and let it boil for a minute.
Sanitize the instant pot thoroughly
- the steel insert, lid and sealing ring. If you have an extra sealing ring for sweet foods, use it.
If you don't have already roasted nuts. Add 1 tbsp of
in the instant pot and saute the nuts for about a minute. Then follow the recipe.
When kheer is stored, it gets thicker and creamier. If you prefer, you can thin the consistency by adding more milk.
This recipe was created in a 6qt Instant Pot DUO60 Multi-use Pressure Cooker. I do not recommend making this in a 3qt or doubling the recipe in a 6qt, as the milk boils and can come out.
Add cinnamon powder and vanilla essence to get a different flavor.
You can use brown sugar instead of white sugar, based on your preference.
