Instant Pot Oats Kheer | Oats Pudding

Oats Kheer is also called as Oats Payasam or Oats Pudding.  It is delicious and easy to make in instant pot. 

Oats are gluten free whole grains, which are filled with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.  They will help in weight loss and controlling blood sugar.

Oats is healthier than rice, so I prefer Oats kheer instead of Rice kheer.  This rich in taste and creamy as same as rice kheer.  It is the perfect dessert after dinner.
