Ada Pradhaman Recipe / Ada Payasam Recipe - Onam Sadya Recipes

I made this payasam few weeks back, specially for onam. I also made a palada pradhaman which has milk and sugar instead of jaggery and coconut milk. Will share that today. Keep looking for it..I have planned to do three more post for onam. Will manage to share it tomorrow. Check out my other ONAM RECIPES..

This payasam is delicious and has a lovely flavour of coconut milk. So please dont substitute milk in this recipe. Coconut milk and jaggery is really a good combination. So give this and try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 35 to 40 mins
Serves : 4


Rice Ada / Ada - 1/2 cup
Jaggery / Sarkarai - 1 cup
Water - 2 cup + 1/2 cup
Cashewnuts - 3 tblspn
Kishmish - 3 tblspn
Cardamom Powder / Yelakai - 1 tsp


Take jaggery in sauce pan, add in 1/2 cup of water and heat it till the jaggery is melted. Now strain it and set aside.

Take rice ada in a big pan, add in 2 cup of water and cook on low to medium heat till the ada is cooked. Now the ada mix will be thick too.

Add in jaggery water and keep stiring till the mix gets thick.

Add in thin coconut milk and boil for few mins, till it gets thick.

Add in first coconut milk and mix well. Turn off the heat and fry cashews and kishmish in ghee till golden.

Add in cardamom powder and fried nuts to payasam and mix well.
