Indian Rice Pudding (Kheer)
Easy saffron infused Indian Rice Pudding (Kheer) made in just a few short minutes in an instant pot or electric pressure cooker.
Electric Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot)
uncooked basmati rice
Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
(12 ounces each) cans evaporated milk
bruised whole cardamom pods
I prefer generous; use less for a milder flavor
chopped toasted pistachio nuts
Place saffron in hot water and steep for ten minutes.
Add saffron infusion to the instant pot with all other ingredients except the pistachios and stir.
Place lid on pressure cooker and seal in a locked position.
Set cooker to manual for ten minutes.
Allow pressure to release completely before removing lid.
Stir kheer to break up any rice lumps, and adjust consistency with milk if you like it thinner (preference varies).
Serve kheer garnished with chopped pistachio nuts.
