Palada Payasam....Onam Special

  • Rice Ada (the white flakes seen in the picture) : 1 cup
  • Boiled milk : 6 cup
  • Sugar : ¾ to 1 cup
  • Cardamom pdr : ¼ Tsp
  • Ghee : 2 Tbsp
  • Water : 2 cup

Boil the milk and keep it aside. Wash and drain the ada. Boil  water in a vessel and remove it from fire. Then soak the drained ada  for 20 mins. Again, drain the soaked ada and rinse under cold water 2 to 3 times. Keep it aside. Heat a heavy bottom vessel (uruli) and pour 1 tbsp of ghee. Add sugar into it and melt it completely. Add the drained ada into it and saute it with ghee - sugar mix in low flame till it turns into light golden colour. Next, pour the boiled milk into the sauted ada. Boil the milk until it turns thick and it changes to a light pink colour. This process takes about 35 to 40 mins. Finally, add the cardamom pdr and combine well. Remove it from fire. Your Palada Payasam (Milk Ada Kheer) is ready.
