Palada Payasam

A very happy New Year to all the Tamilians and Keralites. For this tamil new year I wanted to try something different than the usual things I make. So this new years special was "Palada Payasam", a Keralite special. After I had a chat with my friends over the phone I got a Recipe for it. Came out very excellent.

Palada Payasam

Ready made Palada - 1 1/2 cup
Milk - 2 lt
Sugar - 4  cups
Cardamom Powder - 1/2 t.sp
Broken Cashew - 1 tb.sp
Ghee - 1 tb.sp


Wash the Palada in water and soak it in hot water for about 10 minutes. Rinse it in cold water again. Cook the milk and Palada in a pressure cooker. Put the cooker in sim after the 1st whistle and wait for about 10 to 15 minutes. Switch of the gas later on. Once the pressure is released, open the cooker and put the cooker back on the stove. Now add the sugar, cardamom powder and let it boil. Keep stirring. Let it simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes. Strew the roasted cashews on top and serve it hot.
