Rice kheer, Indian Instant pot recipes

Rice kheer in instant pot, using instant pot for rice kheer is easier as it need not be supervised or worry about overflowing. Step by step & quick video.

I planned to make rice kheer for my Instant pot Diwali special Live session in my facebook page. Because of long waiting time, I changed my plan last minute. I really loved the way it is prepared less messy when compared to the regular method, as well as less worrying. This is similar to the paal payasam I posted earlier. But this is so versatile.

For variations, if you like more rice and thicker consistency, you can use 1/4 cup rice instead of 1/8 cup. One more variation is you can powder the rice coarsely for more homogenous texture.

Are videos more your thing?

Here’s a quick video on how to make the rice kheer in instant pot.

While shooting, I was letting the rice slightly browned, so my kheer was on cream colour rather than white. So please take care not to change the colour of the rice for whiter results.

In terms of mode, I chose Porridge menu. But you can also do this in pressure cooker mode by reducing the milk we add earlier (half the quantity) and then adding rest of the milk and simmer in Saute mode for thickening. You can also use condensed milk for even more quicker results, instead of adding 2 cups milk at the end and simmering. If using condensed milk, reduce sugar quantity accordingly.

Nuts can be of your choice. It can be badam, pistachio or even ghee roasted cashews.

Wishing all my readers a Happy New Year 2021 🎉🎊

Instant pot Rice kheer summary:

Rice and milk cooked in Porridge menu and later simmered quickly after adding sugar, saffron & cardamom.

This can be served warm or cold depending on your personal preference. I basically love all my kheers chilled.
