INSTAPOT Rice Pudding

I personally don’t like rice pudding but Chris loves it so I decided to try making it in the Instapot.  I remembered reading somewhere that Arborio rice is the best type of rice to use for rice pudding so I grabbed a bag of it when I was grocery shopping last and made a batch of it for Chris.  He said it is the best rice pudding I have made for him so far!



Here are my ingredients.

I added the rice, water and salt to the bowl of the Instapot.


And using the Pressure Cook function, set the timer for 3 minutes to cook the rice, then let it naturally release the pressure for about 10 minutes.


Next I added 1 1/2 cups of milk and sugar to the bowl and stirred.

In a small bowl, I whisked together the 1/2 cup milk, eggs and vanilla until well blended before adding it to the bowl.


I switched the Instapot to the Sauté function and brought the mixture to a boil.

I turned off the Instapot and added the raisins.


I removed the bowl to let it cool.  The pudding will thicken as it cools.  You can add additional milk if needed to get your desired consistency.
