Rinse rice and drain. Place rice, whole milk, coconut milk, water, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in the Cooking Pot. Select Sauté and bring to a low boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. As soon as the mixture comes to a boil, cover and lock lid in place. Select Low Pressure and set timer for 15 minutes. When audible beep sounds, use Quick Pressure Release to release pressure. Turn off. When float valve drops, remove lid carefully, tilting away from you to allow steam to disperse. Add vanilla and dried fruit and stir. Place cover on pot, but do not turn on. Let stand for 15 minutes. Stir and serve. May be garnished with a sprinkling of cinnamon and freshly whipped cream.
