Ada Pradhaman is traditionally prepared with coconut milk and jaggery. Palada pradhaman is prepared with rice flakes, milk and sugar. Rice ada or rice flakes is used for preparing both the payasams. As Onam is round the corner (16th, Sept 2013), I wanted to share this easy Palada Pradhaman payasam recipe.Today we will learn how to make Palada Payasam following this easy recipe.
How to make Palada Payasam
Prep time:15 mins
Cook time:40 mins
Rice Ada -1/3 cup (I used ready made rice ada)
Milk -3 cups
Sugar -1/2 cup
Cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
Cashew nuts - 4(optional)
Raisins - 5-6 (optional)
Soak ada in boiling water for 30 minutes.Wash the soaked ada in cold water 2-3 times. This is done to prevent the ada from sticking together. Drain the water completely and keep it aside.
Boil 3 cups of milk until it reduces to 2 1/2 cups. Then add the washed ada and cook stirring in low flame until ada becomes soft.
Add sugar and cook for some more time. The payasam changes to pale cream color. Mix cardamom powder and switch off the flame.
Heat a tsp of ghee, fry cashew nuts and raisins separately. Add it to the payasam. This is optional. You can add if you prefer as it is not added traditionally.
After 10-15 mins, add 1/2 tsp of butter and stir.
Delicious Palada Payasam is ready. Serve hot or chilled.
