Palada Pradhaman Payasam
Palada Pradhaman - The payasam name reminds of the college days when we used to drink bottles of this palada pradhaman from our mallu friends. They used to bring ada pradhaman / palada pradhaman even before onam for our sake. Now that I know how to make ada padhaman, I can enjoy it anytime of the year...Do try our this easy pradhaman for Onam.

I wanted to start new year with a sweeter note so this payasam post - again thanks to the drafts.You can check the traditional ada pradhaman payasam too.

Hope all are enjoying the new year. Our apt new year party yesterday went great that the memories are still in my mind :) I took my camera but was so involved that I didnt click pics ;) It was soo good to watch the kids play, dance and fill the stage with life. As a additional surprise I was called in as a judge for jodi porutham and I totally enjoyed judging the show. The party ended with a final touch of fireworks and cake cutting at midnight.

I made the palada payasam almost the same way how we make semiya payasam and it turned out creamy and yummy. This version is quick and rich to be made instantly even at the last minute. This time I used the left over readymade ada for the payasam, you can make homemade ada too.
