Ada pradhaman - Onam sadya recipes

This is one of the kerala payasam I did for Onam. I cannot post it on that day an do not want to drag for an year too, so posting it now. Do try for any festival or events, it tastes delicious with coconut milk and the rice ada in pradhaman feels like jelly. A rich dessert indeed :)

  • Ada - 1 cup
  • Coconut milk thin - 2 cups
  • Coconut milk thick - 1 cup
  • Jaggery - 1.5 cups
  • Cardamon powder - 1 tsp

Prepare coconut milk or if using canned, dilute with water for thin milk and use as it is for thick milk. Prepare jaggery syrup by dissolving  jaggery in 3/4 cup of water. Strain and remove impurities. 
Boil water, switch it off. Drop ada in water for 15 minutes. If you feel it is cooked more, rinse in cold water.
Transfer the ada in a strainer to remove water. Boil the think coconut milk in a heavy vessel. Cook the ada soft in thin coconut milk.
Add Jaggery syrup and continue stirring on a low flame till it is reduced. Remove from fire. Add thick coconut milk and cardamon powder.
 Serve hot or cold.

  • The jaggery can be replaced with dark brown sugar.
  • Adding cashews in purely optional. I did for picture :)



So yumm..seems perfect :) thanks for sharing!
