Paramannam/Rice Pudding in instapot

From where I came from, Paramannam is one dish that is prepared as offering to God for almost all the festivals and rituals. This is the first dish that is made during gruhapravesam(house warming) as well. It has a divine taste which I am not sure comes from the dish itself or from the devotional feelings towards the God :). I made this divine offering in an instapot and it came out really good. Ingredients 750ml Milk 1 cup water 1 cup rice 2 tbsp Tapioca/sabudhana/saggubiyyam 1 tbsp moong dal 1 cup jaggery finely grated 2 tbsp sugar 2 tbsp raisins handful of cashews 2 tbsp ghee(more if preferred) 2 cardamom pods crushed Turn on the instapot with saute mode on.   Add milk, water and bring it to a boil. Add rice, saggubiyyam and moong dal. Close the lid and t urn off the saute mode. Turn on pressure cooker mode, make sure the whistle in in sealing mode and set the timer to 4 minutes. Once the 4 minutes are up, turn off the instapot and let it sit for 1 minu
