palada-payasam-recipe This is a rich dessert (payasam) made with readymade rice ada, milk and sugar as main ingredients. I have tasted ada pradhaman only once in a restaurant and really loved it. I had no clue what it was that time. But never thought of attempting it as I had no idea how to make. Two years back I bought a pack of store bought rice ada. I totally forgot and threw away after the expiry date. This year again I got this one and decided to make ada pradhaman. (I read somewhere that pradhaman are jaggery based and coconut milk based) I then ended up making this palada payasam. I have wish to try making from scratch the ada and making ada pradhaman, one day will have to try that, meanwhile I wanted to try this short cut method using store bought ada. I used Bambino readymade rice ada.

Wishing a very Happy Onam too! :)


Palada payasam recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Dessert
Prep Time5 mins     |  Cook time: 35 mins     Serves: 6

Ingredients

Rice ada (readymade) - 1/2 cup heaped

Milk - 1 litre

Sugar - 1 cup

Cardamom - 1

Cashew nuts - 8

Ghee - 2 tsp


Method

  1. Take 1/2 cup heaped rice ada, wash and drain the water.
  2. 1-wash
  3. Boil 1 cup water and soak the ada in it. Keep closed for 15 mins.
  4. 2-soak
  5. Boil milk with a cup of water and add the soaked ada. Continue heating it over medium flame with constant stirring to avoid burnt bottom.
  6. 3-boil
  7. Once the milk turns cream coloured and thick, add sugar and mix well to dissolve it.
  8. 4-sugar
  9. Roast cashew nuts in ghee until golden and add it to the payasam along with powdered cardamom. Bring to boil and the payasam is ready.
  10. 5-ready

Notes

    • You can add fried raisins along with cashews.
    • I add a generous pinch of salt to avoid the flat sweet taste. 
    • As it cools down gets slightly thickened, so switch off accordingly.

It can be served both hot or cold, I love it both ways. Rich and creamy! palada-payasam

    2. Hi Aksh,

      You have a fair point.

      But people like me (lazy bum) do not want to spend much time in the kitchen. Plus, I learnt basic stuffs from Rakskka. Even after she put so much effort, I still have doubts as I am not much familiar with Indian cooking. It helps people like us.
