Instant Pot Kheer
No need to wait hours for whole milk to thicken: Using half-and-half and cooking in the Instant Pot gives this rice pudding a head start. The delicate and lovely rose syrup highlights the floral notes in the cardamom, while the tart apricots tame the richness in the pudding. If rose water isn't your thing, try orange blossom water, which can easily be found in an international market. Don't, however, substitute standard long-grain rice for basmati.
