Palada Payasam is my all time favorite.Few weeks back I made palada payasam and wanted to make with it as I have already tried it and it got over even before I clicked.So this time I made it for posting sake and clicked it.This method of payasam making was suggested to me by my friend Ganga and it is sure a keeper to try for all payasam recipes.Thank you so much Ganga.
As Onam is round the corner thought of posting this easy Palada Pradhaman Recipe.
This version is quick and rich to be made. This time I used the left over readymade ada for the payasam, you can make homemade ada too.

- Take a pressure cooker put the stand add water then place the vessel containing milk on it.Put a spoon inside the vessel(this is to avoid milk overflowing).

- Now remove the spoon and pour this milk to the pressure cooker directly and heat it up.Add ada.

- Cook for 5 more mins in low flame or until it reaches a thick creamy consistency.Switch off.Serve it hot / cold as per your preference.
Serve hot / warm.I love it chilled!
- This payasam tends to thicken with time, add milk at the time of serving.
- You can even add cashews fried in ghee and add it.
- Adding spoon or a plate will avoid milk from overflowing.
- Cool down the payasam fully before pouring it into the mould.
- If you feel the payasam to be thick, just add in little milk while serving.
- You can serve it warm or cold – I love it cold 🙂
