In the Kitchen # Instant Pot Vanilla Rice Pudding

Social media going crazy, friends are talking, people are raving about it. But I wasn’t convinced until now. I waited and waited and at last, I bought 7 in 1 Instant Pot.

After months of use, I now feel that I have made the right decision.

Here is the Instant Pot rice pudding which came out the way I wanted creamy, rich in texture and taste.
