Kerala palada payasam / Palada pradhaman recipe without condensed milk
Palada payasam is a creamy, rich Kerala dessert recipe that is made specially during festivals like Onam, Vishu. It is made with milk, sugar and ada (rice chips) Some people add condensed milk by reducing the quantity of sugar.But the authentic version is made by boiling and cooking ada in milk in a thick wide pan called Uruli in Malayalam.Here I used store bought ada.I cooked the ada using pressure cooker and added in thickened, sweetened milk.It was very creamy and its become my favorite payasam now.Iam happy that I have tried Kerala's most popular Ada pradhaman and palada payasam for this year's onam sadya.Lets see how to make Kerala style palada payasam with step by step photo.
