Palada Pradhaman

Cooking time: 90 mins

Palada pradhaman is from our native Kerala. It is a famous payasam made from cooked flakes of rice, milk and sugar. This is served as a dessert after a sadhya (feast in malayalam). It is pretty easy to make but need a little patience for the milk to condense :-) My kids love the payasam and so, often visits my menu.

Ingredients

Rice ada-200gms
Whole milk-3ltrs
Sugar-500gms (can be varied as per taste)
Ghee-2tbsp
Cashew nuts-few
Raisins-few
Cardamom -3

Method
Cook the adas as per instructions on the packet. It may differ for each. I soaked it in hot water for 20 mins and then rinsed in cold water, so that they do not stick to each other. Keep it aside.

Now in a heavy bottom vessel, boil the milk until it reduces and gets a light pink colour. Now add the adas and cook on a slow flame for about 15 mins and then add the sugar, mix well and cook until the desired consistency.(It will get thicker when cold, so do not make it too thick). Add the powdered cardamom. Heat ghee in a pan, fry the cashews and raisins till golden and add to the payasam.



Note: If the adas are big, you can put it in a mixer and crush it a little.
