    Adding of Chia Seeds

Instant Pot Method

  • Rinse the blueberries well.
  • Add the berries to the inner vessel of the Instant pot.
  • Gently crush the berries with a potato masher.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of water. (This is optional, I just added it so that it does not get burned. But it is not necessary as the berries release water.)
  • Pressure cook on sealing mode for 5 minutes.
  • Once the pressure has settled and the pin dropped open the lid.
  • Now switch the Instant pot in saute mode.
  • Lightly crush the berries if required and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  • Switch the Instant pot off and add the Chia or Basil seeds to it.

Notes

  • Any berries can be used.
  • The proportion of ingredients is a rough guide. One can change the proportion.
  • One can add sugar to this too. For every 1 cup of berries add 2 cups of sugar.
