for the Rice

  • 1 cup long grain rice white, I use the rice measuring cup provided with the Instant Pot
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • tsp kosher salt

to add After Cooking

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk 14 oz
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon for topping


  • Rinse the rice using a mesh strainer until the water runs clean. I like the brand Mahatma.
  • Add the milk, water, rice and salt to the Instant Pot and stir.
  • Set the Instant Pot on the Porridge setting (20 minutes).
  • Allow for a 10 minute NPR (natural pressure release) and then release the remaining pressure and open the pot.
