Rice Pudding that Really Pops!
Rice pudding is one of the most popular desserts you can make in a pressure cooker. Not surprisingly so, as this dish has many variations all around the world. Perhaps another reason for its popular is that rice never goes out of style; it can be served warm on chilly weather or cold during summer. It can also be eaten as a breakfast, a creamy alternative to the regular cereal. While making a rice pudding takes about 45 minutes in the stovetop with constant stirring, in a pressure cooker, you only have to cook it for less than 10 minutes. Like other desserts made in this convenient kitchen equipment, the result is simply delicious and moist. So here's a pressure cooker recipe for rice pudding. It's easy to make and calls for simple ingredients. Creamy and delicious, with just enough chewiness in the rice.

Take note that, in using a pressure cooker, no flavour is lost, so make sure to use less flavouring than you normally would in other conventional methods (e.g., vanilla, lemon peel, cinnamon). Also, you don't have to limit yourself to cinnamon – though we know how many cinnamon lovers there are. You can also top the rice pudding with ripe berries, sliced or dried fruits. This adds colour and flavour to the dish. Lastly, note that rice pudding thickens if not consumed eventually, so you may have to add some more milk.
