Palada Pradhaman


Wishing everyone a very Happy Vishu and Tamil New Year. 

Vishu falls on 15th April this year. No feast is complete without the payasam. So here is a simple payasam for the Vishu Sadya.  In olden days, the ada was also made from scratch and hence the whole process of making this payasam took quite some time. I have used the ready made store bought rice ada, which I got from India. 



What you'll need
  1. Rice Ada – ¼ cup + 1 tbsp
  2. Milk – 3 Cup
  3. Milkmaid – 2 tbsp (optional)
  4. Sugar – ½ Cup + 1 tbsp
  5. Cardamom – 3 to 4
  6. Butter – 1 tbsp


Method
  1. Soak the ada in 3 cups of boiling water for 20 to 25 minutes. Strain it and wash in cold water 2 to 3 times.
  2. Take milk in a heavy bottomed vessel and bring to boil. Let the milk simmer on low to medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Keep stirring occasionally to avoid burning.
  3. Add the rice ada and simmer for 5 minutes.
  4. Now add the sugar and simmer for another 15 minutes. Keep stirring once in a while to avoid burning.
  5. Add the milkmaid and mix well.
  6. Remove from heat. Add the crushed cardamom and the butter. Mix well.

Serve warm.



Note:
  1. Adding milkmaid is optional, it enhances the taste. If not using milkmaid, increase sugar to ¾ cup.
