Vanilla Chai Spiced Rice Pudding

We love the versatility of this Vanilla Chai Spiced Rice Pudding recipe from Made in the Panasonic HL151 Induction Heat Rice Cooker, this simple set-and-forget, one-pot recipe can be enjoyed hot or cold, and without the chai spice if you prefer a more traditional rice pudding.
Servings: 4


  • 1 cup* Arborio rice 150g *Use the measuring cup provided with the rice cooker.
  • 3 cups full cream milk 750mL
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar 60g
  • 1 vanilla bean split & seeds scraped out
  • 1 cinnamon quill
  • 7 cardamom pods
  • 7 whole cloves
  • 5 black peppercorns
  • 2 star anise
  • 3 slices ginger 18g
  • 1 knob of butter


  • Add all ingredients (except the butter) into the inner pot and stir evenly to distribute the sugar and spices amongst the rice and milk.
  • Close the lid of the rice cooker and select ‘Congee/Soup’. Press Start.
  • One hour later, your rice cooker will chime. Open the lid and add in a knob of butter. Stir to melt through.
  • Remove the spices from the rice pudding and serve warm with a dusting of cinnamon powder (optional) or distribute into individual bowls and chill in the fridge to serve cold.
