Instant Pot Rice Pudding - Dairy and Gluten Free - Profusion Curry



  • ¼ cup arborio rice – 65 grams. basmati rice or jasmine rice can be added instead.
  • 3 cups whole milk


  • ¼ cup unrefined cane sugar or raw sugar – 75 grams.


  • white sugar can be used instead


  • 1 pinch salt


  • 8 to 10 almonds – slivered or chopped


  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or ½ teaspoon vanilla essence


  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon (cinnamon powder)

  • ⅛ teaspoon grated nutmeg or ground nutmeg (nutmeg powder)





  • Take out the inner steel pot with the arborio rice. I use a little sieve or strainer to rinse the rice once or twice, but you can certainly do that if you’d like.


  • Additionally, you can use jasmine and basmati rice. When utilizing basmati or jasmine rice, cut back on the amount of milk to 2.5 cups.


  • Add whole milk, a small teaspoon of salt, and unrefined cane sugar. White sugar can be substituted.
    Using a spoon, stir and combine.
  • Place the steam release handle in the sealed position and cover and fasten the instant pot with its lid.


  • Click the Porridge Setting button, which includes a 20-minute automatic timer.


  • Twenty minutes later, when the beep sounds After making a sound, release the pressure naturally for ten minutes.


  • Lift the steam release handle after ten minutes, and then open the lid when the float valve descends.


  • There would have been a few lumps in some areas of the rice. So use a spoon to break up most of these lumps.


  • Add the ground nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.


  • Add the nuts of your choosing. I also included some golden raisins.
  • In normal mode, press the sauté button and set the timer for 4 to 5 minutes.


  • Stir frequently to prevent scorching or burning of the pudding from the bottom once you hear the beep sound and see it cooking.


  • should you want it to thicken, about 4 to 5 minutes.


  • As the pudding cools, it thickens even more, so keep in mind the consistency you want. Once the rice pudding reaches the right consistency, stir and boil it.


  • You can serve the Instant Pot Rice Pudding warm, cold, or hot. If desired, top with a dollop of cream. Before serving, do add some sliced almonds or raisins as a garnish.


  • Store any remaining pudding in the refrigerator in an airtight container. You may refrigerate this rice pudding for up to four or five days.

Why I Love The Instant Pot


  • For the past few years, I’ve been receiving a lot of requests to share Instant Pot recipes, but for various reasons, I kept putting off obtaining one. I bought an instant pot one day after receiving an email from a reader asking for recipes.
  • It has been one of my best purchases, and I don’t mean to sound dramatic. I’ve found it incredibly helpful to multicook daily meals. The easiest thing about using the Instant Pot is how simple it is to clean and how intuitive it is.
