Kheer Rice Pudding

Kheer Rice Pudding is a deliciously creamy Indian dessert pudding. Traditional Kheer is quite laborous, but my recipe makes it easy!

  • Put rice, coconut milk, water, sugar, raisins, cashews, and saffron strands into the Instant Pot
  • Close the lid and cook on HIGH Pressure for 20 minutes. Allow the pot to sit undisturbed for 10 minutes and then release all remaining pressure.
  • When you open the pot, you'll see a little bit of curdling, don't worry about this. Add in ground cardamom and mix everything together well. You may want to thin a little with almond milk or additional coconut milk.
  • Eat some hot, and put the rest in the fridge to eat cold so you can see which way you like it. I like it both ways :)
