Ada Pradhaman Recipe With Homemade Ada is a special payasam made on festivals days with rice, jaggery and coconut during special occasions in Kerala. Instead of rice Ada/ rice flakes, I have made this dish using rice flour. Though the 'Ada' made from rice flour is available ready-made in shops, it can be easily made at home from scratch.
As you spoon in the deliciously sweet semi-liquid, the chewy "Ada" in every spoon gives a unique experience as a wholesome dessert. This dessert can be served both hot and chilled.
Serve Ada Pradhaman Recipe, as part of an Onam Sadhya.

To make homemade rice ada, in a mixing bowl, combine rice flour with a pinch of salt in a bowl and pour boiling hot water into the flour and combine it to make a dough using a spoon/spatula.
Preheat a steamer, to steam the adas.
Grease a banana leaf with oil and spread the rice dough into a thin layer on half of the banana leaf.
Close the ada using the other side of the banana leaf.
Steam cook this for 10-15 minutes.
Once cool, remove the ada from the leaf and cut into smaller pieces to look flaky.
To proceed with payasam recipe, heat a pan with ghee on low flame add the cashews, coconut, and raisins till they are golden. Turn off the flame and set aside.
Heat a saucepan, on medium heat, add jaggery with 3/4 cup of water, heat till the jaggery dissolves, once it is well dissolved, turn off the flame. Pass the jaggery syrup through a strainer and set aside.
