Instant Pot Rice Pudding

Rice Pudding

  • 1 1/2 cups arborio rice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • dash salt
  • 5 cups milk
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and/or nutmeg (optional)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup raisins (optional)
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk or cream
  • 1 teaspoon vamilla

Mix the first four ingredients (and optional cinnamon or nutmeg) in the pot, stirring until the sugar and salt are dissolved. Turn on Saute and stir, keep stirring until it comes to a boil. (I didn’t stir constantly, but very frequently, you don’t want to burn the milk on the bottom of your pot)

When it boils, turn off Saute, seal the lid and turn on Rice function. When the timer goes off, shut it off instead of letting it go to the “keep warm” function. Wait 15 minutes (NPR for 15 minutes). While waiting mix the last three ingredients. After 15 minutes, release the pressure and remove the lid.

Stir in dried fruit, if you like.

Set to Saute again and add second mixture to the pot . Stir until it comes back to a boil, and you’re done.

Options – I like this without raisins, with golden raisins, and with dried cherries. I bet it would taste really good with dried cranberries or your favorite dried fruit.
