Rice Ada : Rice Ada is made from Raw rice.

Paalada Pradhaman Recipe :

Thats it : Soaking – Pressure Cooking - Seeding
Cooking Time:30 mins + 15mins Soaking time       Serves :2 Persons

Ada (i used store-bought)
½ Cup
Cashew nuts

1.Boil the water and switch off the flame.Add ada soak it for 20 mins.Drain the water and rinse under cold water 2 times to remove the impurities.
2.In a Pressure cooker ,add milk, ada, sugar ,cardamom(crushed or powdered) and pressure cook for one whistle with medium heat.After pressure release ,you see ada turns to the light pink colour.Again cook in low flame without a lid for 15 mins to get thick consistency.Turn off the flame.

3.Heat a seeding pan, add ghee, broken cashews, Raisins ,when it becomes light brown add it to the Paalada Mixture.Add one tsp of butter and mix well to aviod the upper cheese like sheet.

Serve Hot or Chill.
Notes :
1.You are having homemade rice ada then fry the ada till brown colour and add it to the milk instead of soaking.
 (Soaking and rinsing is to remove impurities.If you confident with your clean homemade ada then go for frying.)
2.Your pradhaman is too thick then add milk and simmer for 5 mins.
3.My Man suggests broken cashews are well for paayasams.
