Palada Pradhaman Version I using coconut

Now Onam is around the corner and Iam posting this special payasam recipe.I made this using store bought ada and brown sugar instead of white
Also check out for another version Caramelized Palada Pradhaman


Ingredients
  • Palada - 3/4 cup
  • Milk - 2L (use toned / full cream milk)
  • Brown sugar - 3/4 - 1 cup
  • Grated coconut - 1 cup
  • Saffron strands - 3 - 4
  • Ghee - 1 tablespoon
  • Cashews - 4 or 5

Method
Step 1 - Getting Ada Ready
  • Wash ada in water and pour hot water over it.Just to immerse the contents
  • Keep it closed for 1/2 hour and strain it.Wash it again in running water
Step 2 - Palada Pradhaman / Payasam
  • Heat ghee in a kadai.Roast cashews in it and also fry cooked palada in it.This prevents the ada sticking from each other
  • Pour milk in it and bring it to boil
  • Once it starts boiling reduce the flame, put saffron strands and stir for 45 minutes / till the milk reduces to 1/2 its quantity and you will notice change in colour - pale
  • Add brown sugar and mix well
  • Put grated coconut and switch off the stove
  • Serve hot / chilled

Yummy Palada Pradhaman is ready.Include this in your Onam Sadhya
