Welcome to my Instant Pot Rice Recipes. Lots of new and exciting ways to use the rice setting on your Instant Pot.
These Instant Pot recipes are perfect for beginners that want to get to grips with the Instant Pot but don’t know where to start.
I am trying to think back to my first experience of rice and it would have to be having rice pudding at school dinners when I was in primary school.
It was always served with a little jam on top just like Dominic made for me in this recipe.
It was always delicious and you would always want to go back for some seconds. Also because the rice was so filling you never felt like you wanted anything else for hours and hours.
I didn’t know anyone that didn’t like it, it was just that good.
So as you would say, I started my rice journey with sweet rice NOT savoury. Though I was never a fan of the rice out of a can. You can keep that as it is just not the same as the real thing.
My journey with the savoury variety always surrounded my love for a curry. Give me a delicious butter chicken from the Indian restaurant and serve it with pilau rice and I am in serious food heaven.
I mean how can you not love Indian food? It is truly amazing!
But whatever your addiction with rice may be there is always a dish out there for you.
