Ada Pradhaman Recipe - Kerala Style Ada Pradhaman Payasam

Ada Pradhaman Recipe
Ada Pradhaman is a traditional payasam made for Onam.Onam sadya is incomplete without this rich ada pradhaman payasam. I have had ada pradhaman many times 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 readers who are celebrating!

Ada Pradhaman Recipe

I love both jaggery version and sugar version.With homemade ada I am sure it would taste even more good, so if you have time please try to make ada at home then try this payasam.But if you are like pressed for time then get readymade ada,I used Double Horse brand ada.

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
Thin Coconut milk - 1/2 cup
Thick Coconut milk - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 tsp + 1/2 tsp
Cashew nuts - 12
Coconut pieces - 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. Soak ada in water for 15mins, then rinse it well.,Boil water(just and then add the ada and cook until soft. It should only be slightly soft as it will again get cooked with the jaggery syrup and coconut milk.Drain water and set aside.

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:

  • 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.
  • The store bought ada is very tiny and cooks faster so take care not to mush 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.

  40. Divinoooooo divine! :) so you dint try with home made ada?

  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!
