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!

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

    By DRW

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

    By grace jones

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
