Ada Pradhaman Recipe - Kerala Ada Payasam | Onam Sadya Recipes

Ada Pradhaman Recipe
Ada Pradhaman is my fav payasam recipe. I have had this manyt imes at my friends place during onam.As I had already mentioned I coudnt use the homemade ada for the payasam as I made the ada last week and it was a tight day for a photoshoot. So I used the store bought ones and made this couple of days back. Check out paalada pradhaman recipe too...However ada prathaman tasted divine........ Happy Onam to all mallu readers and friends in advance from Sharmis Passions!

Ada Pradhaman Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Serves : 2
Recipe Category: Dessert | Recipe Cuisine: Kerala

Ada - 1/2 cup [Click on it for homemade ada step by step recipe]
Jaggery - 1 cup
Coconut milk - 2 cups
Ghee - 1 tbsp
Cashew nuts - 1 tbsp chopped
Cardamom powder - 1/2 tsp
Coconut pieces - 1 tbsp (I didnt use)

Method:

  1. I bought the brand named double horse for ada from Nilgiris , later found it was a trusted kerala brand, the store bought ada was very tiny. Boil water switch off and then add the ada and keep aside for 15-20mins until it becomes slightly soft. It should only be slightly soft as it will again get cooked with the coconut milk and jaggery syrup.

  2. Drain water and set aside the ada. Now start taking coconut milk, grind coocnut with little water and extract 2 cups of coconut milk one should be thick and another cup a bit thin . Fry cashews and coconut pieces in ghee and keep aside.Skip soaking and draining of ada if you are making ada at home

  3. Add water to jaggery just to immersing level and mix well till jaggery fully dissolves. Now strain the jaggery to remove the impurities. Then allow the jaggery syrup to boil for 3-5mins until it starts thickening.

  4. At this stage add the cooked ada, ghee and give a stir and cook till the jaggery starts thickening. Now add the thin coconut milk first allow it boil in sim for 5mins. Then add the thick coconut milk and simmer for another 5-7 mins.

  5. Simmer it until the payasam gets thick. It will further get thickened so take it a bit runny. Add cardomom powder , ghee fried cashews and coconut pieces(if you are using it), give a quick stir and switch off.Serve it hot or cold as per your liking.

The flavour of coconut milk with the rice ada tastes divine that I coudnt stop with one cup :) Next n my todo list is the pal ada prathaman with sugar.
Ada Pradhaman Recipe

My Notes:

  • If you are using homemade ada then its just enough to add it directly to the paysam, only for store bought ada you need to add in boiling water to make it soft.
  • The store bought ada is very tiny and cooks faster so take care not to smash it up.
  • The consistency of the payasam while switching off should be semi thick as it thickens with time later, you can add little milk to make it payasam consistency while serving if you feel thick.
  • You can add even raisins while frying cashews and add it to the prathaman. Adding ghee fried coconut pieces will be even more rich.
  • The color of the prathaman light brown or dark brown mainly depends on the jaggery variety.I used normal jaggery if you use paagu vellam you may get the dark brown color.

  41. In kerala the jaggery is towards the darker side which makes it perfect. The ones we get in TN are refined and hence the lighter hue. The darker ones have more sand particles in it but once made into payasam, it has its real enhanced taste!
