Ingredients 

Milk & Egg Mixture:

  • 2 cups (500ml) whole milk
  • cup (78g) white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) vanilla extract
  • 2 pinches sea or table salt
  • 1 large egg , beaten

Toppings:

Instructions

  • Rinse Rice: Add 1 cup rice to inner pot. Rinse rice a few times over cold water, then drain really well.

    Rice to Water Ratios:

    1 cup (230g) Jasmine Rice - 1 cup (250ml) cold water
    1 cup (200g) Arborio Rice - 1 ½ cup (375ml) cold water
    1 cup (210g) Basmati Rice - 1 cup (250ml) cold water

    Add cold water in the inner pot, then remove 2 - 3 tablespoons of water.
    *Note: Instructions for a more precise method here.

  • Add Spice & Pressure Cook Rice: Add 1 cinnamon stick (4g) + ½ teaspoon (2g) nutmeg to the inner pot. Give it a quick mix. Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes, then Natural Release for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, release remaining pressure.
  • Make Milk & Egg Mixture: While the rice is pressure cooking, beat a large egg in a large glass container. Add 2 pinches sea salt, 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract, and ⅓ cup white sugar (78g), then mix well. Pour in 2 cups (500ml) whole milk, then mix well.
  • Make Rice Pudding: Pour milk mixture into the cooked rice. Bring the rice pudding mixture to a simmer (Instant Pot: press "Cancel", then "Saute" button). Stir occasionally with a spatula. As the rice pudding mixture heats up, the starch will be released and it will start to thicken. Add in 1 tbsp (14.5) unsalted butter for a more creamy, rich and smooth texture. Continue to stir until the rice pudding reaches desired consistency. Turn off the heat. The rice pudding will thicken as it cools down.
  • Sweeten & Serve: If adding raisins, add them to the bottom of the serving bowl, then pour the rice pudding over the raisins, and stir to combine. Sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top. Then serve hot or cold. Enjoy~ 🙂*Pro Tip: If you are not adding raisins, be sure to taste and sweeten the rice pudding with more sugar or other sweeteners.

Most White Rice will work for making Rice Pudding. These 3 types of rice are great choices.

Best Types of Rice for Making Rice Pudding - Jasmine Rice, Arborio Rice, Basmati Rice
Jasmine Rice – Arborio Rice – Basmati Rice

*Pro Tip: Different types of rice will require different cooking times, and the results will vary. Jasmine rice & Basmati rice will come out less chewy compared to Arborio Rice.

Instant Pot Rice Pudding Recipe Ingredients

1

Rinse Rice


*Pro Tip: The Rice to Water Ratio is critical in cooking perfect rice, so be mindful in measuring the exact amount you use! 🙂

Method #1 – Easy Method:

Add 1 cup of rice to the inner pot. Rinse the rice a few times over cold water, and rub the rice with your hands. Drain really well.

Instant Pot Rice Pudding: add rice to Instant Pot, rinse, and drain well.

Rice to Water Ratios:

  • 1 cup (230g) Jasmine Rice – 1 cup (250ml) cold water
  • 1 cup (200g) Arborio Rice – 1 ½ cup (375ml) cold water
  • 1 cup (210g) Basmati Rice – 1 cup (250ml) cold water

Add cold water in the inner pot, then remove 2 – 3 tablespoons of water.

Method #2 – Most Precise Method:

First place the inner pot on a kitchen scale. Then, add in 1 cup of rice.

Click on the “tare” button, then rinse the rice a few times over cold water. Drain well.

Place the inner pot back on the kitchen scale, then pour in cold water until it indicates the correct amount of water on the kitchen scale.

2

Add Spice & Pressure Cook Rice


Add 1 cinnamon stick (4g) + ½ teaspoon (2g) nutmeg to the inner pot. Give it a quick mix.

*Notes:

  • If you don’t have the cinnamon stick, you can use 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder.
  • You can omit nutmeg if you don’t have any on hand.

Instant Pot Rice Pudding: add cinnamon stick and nutmeg in Instant Pot Pressure Cooker

Close Lid and Pressure Cook at High Pressure for 5 minutes, then Natural Release for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, turn the venting knob to the venting position to release remaining pressure.

When the floating valve drops, open the lid carefully.

3

Make Milk & Egg Mixture


While the rice is pressure cooking, break and beat a large egg in a large glass container.

Add 2 pinches sea salt, 1 tsp (5ml) vanilla extract, cup white sugar (78g) and mix well.

*Pro Tip: If it’s similar to milk consistency (too thin) like above photos, stir a little longer.

Continue to stir until the rice pudding reaches desired consistency – thick, saucy, and creamy smooth.

Turn off the heat. The rice pudding will thicken further as it cools down.

Sprinkle some cinnamon powder on top. 

*Pro Tip: If you are not adding raisins to the rice pudding, be sure to taste and sweeten the rice pudding with more sugar or other sweeteners.

Serve deliciously creamy rice pudding hot or cold.

So, my hubs has been asking for rice pudding For years. I’ve never had it, let alone made it. Tonight, time got away from us and it was 8pm. I had rice rinsed, ready to cook. We decided on popcorn for dinner. I said, but I have rice rinsed and ready to go! He said, “rice pudding!” With no idea where to look, I came to my favorite place, hoping…..There it was! IP rice pudding! Within 20 minutes it was made. Hubs kept saying, “smelling GOOD!” When he tasted it, said it took him back to third grade in South… Read more »

I made this rice pudding yesterday and followed everything to the t. Yet after it cooled down, it was very thick and not very creamy. As someone else said, the consistency is more like sticky rice. How do I change the consistency if I want to eat it cold? The taste is spot on though!5 stars

Easy and really good. Both my husband and I like it warm the best, but happily eat it either hot or cold. I’ll be making it again with a little less sugar, and perhaps a little more milk – but that’s the joy of cooking things yourself, you can easily adapt a good recipe to suit your own taste preferences. Thanks for a very good recipe.5 stars

Hi,
I don’t have jasmine on hand right now. Do you think Basmati would work as a substitute?
Thanks,

Was on the hunt to find a way to use up some remaining milk and came across your page. This recipe is spot on!
I added some aromatic spices that I have on hand (cardamom, saffron) to the ones you suggested and topped with chopped pistachios, as that’s what I have in the pantry. Soooo yummy! Great isolation treat 🙂
Thank you for providing the options for different types of rice. Looking forward to trying more of your creations!5 stars

I went ahead and used coconut milk (canned) in place of the cow’s milk. But the can is only 13 oz, so I made up the remaining 3 oz with cow’s milk. I also used 1/3 cup organic honey in place of the sugar. Everything else is the same as your recipe and it’s DELICIOUS. I used Jasmine rice. Thanks for this recipe — I’m definitely bookmarking it!5 stars

Can I exchange the cow’s milk for coconut milk?

Very good! Only had brown long grain rice on hand and needed a double recipie, so I winged it and doubled all the ingredient quantities. The result was very tasty, but slightly dry…more like the consistancy of some sticky rice I have had(undercooked perhaps?).Poured a bit of milk over it and added more sweetener. For the record…it got gobbled up. You both create the BEST RECIPIES the VERY best. WE LIVED IN LONG BEACH, CA for 19 years and and fell in love with Pho….there Is one Pho restaurant here IN GRAND FORKS,ND and we Must call in advance to… Read more »

Perfection! Though I did have to adapt to the ingredients I had. I used arborio rice, maple syrup, and half and half.5 stars
