Bisibelebath in Instant Pot

So, last week I told you guys that I received my IP and would like to try these recipes. I just got to try yogurt and bisibelebath as of now, both came out well. I tried using part rice part quinoa combined with toor dal and loved how it turned out. You can use just rice and dal too.I’m using my mom’s bisibelebath powder here. Let me know if you’d want the recipe, I can get it from my mom. Here’s how I made it. Click on the ‘Instant pot‘ tag to see other recipes. image2 (16) You will need

  3. Hi,
    Thanks for the recipe. I made it today, turned out yummy. But it got burned a layer at the bottom, any idea why it happened? Im a pretty new user of Instant pot :).

    1. So glad you liked it. Did you switch it off after it’s done? Because it goes to ‘keep warm’ other wise and that might be the reason.
