Ada pradhaman recipe
Ada Pradhaman is an yummy,traditional Kerala dessert recipe (Payasam) that is made specially during Onam and Vishu.Onam sadya would not be complete without Ada pradhaman.Last year I tried Palada pradhaman by making homemade ada(Rice chips) using rice flour.This time I found a packet of readymade ada in a nearby store.So I bought them and tried both palada pradhaman( with milk & sugar) & Ada pradhaman( with coconut milk & jaggery) recipes.My job became much easier with store bought ada.I referred this blog and few video for making Ada pradhaman.It came out very well.The flavor & taste of cooked ada with jaggery syrup and coconut milk was awesome.We had two bowls of this ada payasam after having the splendid Onam Sadya lunch.Lets see the preparation of Kerala style Ada pradhaman recipe.
