Grapefruit marmalade- pressure cooker and super quick !

Grapefruit marmalade made in the instant pot :-)
Ingredients -
1 large grapefruit sliced and bigger seeds removed
1 cup water or minimum that's needed for the cooker to come to pressure
double the amount of sugar
(if the grapefruit is 1 cup, you need 2 cups sugar) I used 4

place the slices and water in pressure cooker. Steam for 10 mins. I used steam function on my instant pot. Let it NR naturally release pressure. Open and give it a good mix. Also savor in your house smelling so good with that citrusy flavor ๐Ÿ˜€
Add double the quantity of sugar. Check taste. Keep in sautรฉ mode for about 10 minutes and do not allow to stick to bottom. Since I didn't remove the pith mine was slightly bitter but still yummy !
There is another way to do this and I couldn't do that beCause my grapefruit was halved already -
if you are using a whole grapefruit, steam it whole in the pressure cooker and discard the water. This will remove the bitterness but will take time to thicken. You can also peel and remove the white pith for sweeter taste.

Bihari Rasiya

I made this today for dinner. It's Friday night after all ! And I realised this was not on my blog.

Here's the recipe -

Rice - 1 cup
Gur / jaggery  / Brown sugar– 1 cup
Water - 2 cups (I eyeballed this)
cardamom – 1 crushed pod
Ghee 1 tsp

Take jaggery and water and let it boil. Then strain jaggery water and set aside. This is done to remove impurities from jaggery. I don't think this step is needed now. I used brown sugar and did not do this. 
I turned on the Instant pot in Saute mode , added the ghee and cardamom and let it sizzle. I did not use any nuts. If using some, you may want to fry them now before adding the rice and water. 

Add rice and water and brown sugar and keep on saute till it starts bubbling. Keep on 1.5 hours slow cook. Check the sweetness and consistency.Ready to served your highness !
