Recipe to cook Slow Cooker Basmati Rice Pudding. The cardamom in this pudding provides an irresistible Indian flavor.


  • 4 cups (1 liter) whole milk or enriched rice milk
  • 1/3 cup (75 ml) Demerara or evaporated cane juice sugar
  • 2 teaspoons (10 ml) ground cardamom
  • 3/4 cup (175 ml) brown basmati rice, rinsed
  • chopped unsalted pistachio nuts


  1. Lightly grease your slow cooker's stoneware insert.
  2. In a large saucepan over medium heat, bring milk to a boil, stirring often. Add sugar and cardamom. Remove from heat and stir in rice. Transfer to prepared slow cooker stoneware. Place a tea towel folded in half (so you will have two layers) over top of stoneware to absorb moisture. Cover and cook on High for 3 hours, until rice is tender and pudding is creamy. Transfer to a serving bowl and cool to room temperature. Garnish with pistachios and, if desired, whipped cream.
