It’s National Indian Pudding Day today. Why, I don’t know, but it sounds yummy! To celebrate, let me share a recipe with you.

It wasn’t until a recent family vacation to India when I realized how much of a body fuel rice was. With a lot of Indian people working in agriculture, it’s no wonder that workers needed a carbohydrate rich diet to keep them going the entire day under the sun.

Now back in the States, when we think of carbo loading, it’s usually pasta. Even I have been serving the kid’s pasta before their weekend football, unaware that there was a healthier alternative. Well not really “unaware”, but more of “that’s the least of my worries for now” type of unaware.

Anyway, I have nothing against pasta. Truth is, I love pasta! But when it comes to my kids, I become overly protective regarding what they eat. I even go to the trouble of sticking with a specific brand of rice, Nishiki Premium Rice, as its all natural and not packed with any preservatives.

Call me paranoid, but hey, these are my kids we’re talking about.

 

Your Ingredients:

2 cups of milk
1¼ cups water
1 cup of medium grained Nishiki Premium Rice
¾ cup of heavy or coconut cream
¼ cup of maple syrup
⅛ tsp of sea salt
1 tsp of vanilla extract

How to make your Creamy Rice Pudding

Get your Nishiki Premium Rice and run it through a fine mesh colander.

Rinse well with a few changes of clean water.

Once done, place rice in an Instant Pot.

Add in the maple syrup, milk, water, sea salt and stir to mix everything together.

Once done, seal the pot and close its vent.

Start cooking the rice by clicking on the porridge button of the pot. The rice will take around 20 minutes to cook.

Once the timer starts to beep, slowly release the pressure for at least 10 minutes. After, press the cancel button and open the vent.

Once pressure has been released, open the lid and add vanilla and cream to the rice.

Stir until the cream and vanilla are thoroughly mixed into the rice and serve with whatever toppings you want.

Mom’s Secret Tip:

Slow cookers are an absolute Godsend for moms with little time. Just load up the pot, set the timer, and that's it! No waiting by the stove or cleaning up gunk because the pot has boiled over. My slow cooker of choice has to be the Instant Pot, because it's not only a slow cooker, it's a yoghurt maker, rice cooker and steamer all-in-one!

Like you, I too love pasta. Thank you for recommending Nishiki Premium Rice for this recipe and explaining why. I’ve always admired rice pudding and this recipes has made me realize how easy a slow cooker makes this process. Excited to try this out.

I want to know the special ingredients used by you but it has not been metioned , actually i tried still something is missing while i really followed each and every steps of yours.

You just gave me some great ideas for making something different. I don’t have a pressure cooker, only a rather large canner. This would work using a heavy-bottom pan with a lid. I like the addition of star anise as a garnish in the photo. I saw Gordon Ramsay use it, tried it, and think it is simply fabulous. Pre-rinsing the rice really makes a big difference in making a perfect dish.

Hi, I am born and brought up in India. I am aware of pudding made with vermicelli (called as kheer). However, I came to know about a new recipe with this article. Good to know that pudding can also be done with Rice. I would definitely try this out.

Being a working mom myself, I am fully aware of the struggle. I was silently saying “Amen” to your whole list of allies to us busy people. I love Indian food and this looks awesome and the one pan thing makes me so happy!

Mandeep#7

I’m from India … So I love Indian foods … This is amazing recipe from rice … It looks really so yummy … I must prepare it on anniversary and husband’s birthday . Thanks

Wesker#8

Great idea for a different take on rice pudding, so much of the store bought rice pudding contains lots of additives and sugar. I’ll definately look out for Nishiki rice as well!

Lorie W#9

This looks and sounds delicious! My sister makes homemade rice pudding using only condensed milk, rice and sugar. It’s so simple and so good,it’s hard to stop eating it once I’ve started. My mother-in-law folds egg whites into hers and adds fruit but it makes it a little too “busy” happy sweet eating people!

Nomnommer#10

I hadn’t thought of using coconut cream in rice pudding. I LOVE coconut cream. Totally giving this a go. I haven’t had rice pudding in a long, long time; thanks for this!

I have needed new kitchen shears for a while- my old ones broke completely in half! I had heard of chef remi from some friends so decided to give their products a try. These shears were priced nicely and looked similar to my old ones so I went ahead and purchased them. They are great! I have been using them for about a week now and I am very pleased. The handles are very sturdy and my hands fit nicely inside. The shears themselves are nicely sharpened and are perfect for all your kitchen cutting needs! I have cut open lots of packages and such and these have worked fantastically! They come with a little clear protector too which is a nice added touch!

Joy said: Super Nice

Best quality that I have seen in a kitchen shear. Super sharp you will love them as much as I do

Grace Pullen said: Grates cheeses without a mess!

I remember Grandma having a much larger version of this for bread crumbs, this is an upgraded version of what she had and I am so happy!!! The silicone tub is slip proof on counters and the graters ( you get 2 types) are sharp and cut cleanly without smearing even the softest cheese. I grated parmigiano reggiano and there was no waste, it all went in the holding tub and not over the counter as does with my upright and my plane grater. I find fresh Ginger hard to grate, the smaller grater did it easily. Storage is minimal since they all nest together after your done. Cleanup is easy, dishwasher safe. Very happy with this item and will probably be using this almost on a daily basis.

Amber said: Two thumbs up

This product works very well it is easy to use and very versatile when it comes to different ways of cooking

Rachel Obregon said: A-peel-ing

This set is perfect. Not only is the handle easy to grip, but the peelers are easy to control and use. I love the one you can cut julienne vegetables! I love this set!
