Instant Pot quinoa payasam!

Growing up, my family always had payasam (Indian sweet rice pudding, aka kheer) to celebrate birthdays. This version comes pretty close to the real deal, but with quinoa and maple syrup in place of rice and brown sugar, respectively. I didn’t have raisins or cashews on hand, but next time I’d fry those in ghee and mix in at the end. Yummmmm ?

For about 4 servings:
✨ 1 cup quinoa
✨ 2 cups coconut milk (or one 14-oz can)
✨ 1 1/2 cup water
✨ 1/4 cup maple syrup (add more to taste)
✨ 1/8 tsp salt
✨ 1 tbsp cardamom powder or 15-20 cardamom pods, crushed

Spray Instant Pot insert with avocado oil spray to prevent sticking. Combine all ingredients and pressure cook on high for 1 min. Allow pressure to naturally release for at least 10 min.
