Butter a baking dish (that will fit into the basket of your Vortex Air Fryer with a little space to spare for air circulation).
Place the coconut milk and cream, and heat in the microwave until warm and melted. Stir in the sugar, vanilla, cardamom, and salt.
Add the rice to the baking dish, then pour over the coconut milk.
Place the dish the Vortex Air Fryer and select Bake, Set the temperature to 140°C and the time to 1 hour. After 45 minutes check to see of the rice is cooked, and if it needs a little longer, put back in for the remaining 15 minutes.
Once the rice is fully cooked, remove the pudding from the Vortex and set aside for 5 minutes to cool ever-so-slightly. Your pudding may look a little runny straight out the Air Fryer but will continue to thicken.
Remove the cardamom pods, then serve with toppings of choice.
