Palada Payasam

Palada Payasam

Prep time:45min
Serves: 2


Rice ada -1/3 cup (I used ready made rice ada)
Milk -3 cups

Milkmaid(sweetened condensed milk)- 4-5 table spoon

Sugar -1/2 cup
Cardamom powder-1/4 tsp
Cashew nuts – 4(optional)
Raisins – 5-6 (optional)


  • Soak ada in boiling water for 30 minutes.Wash the soaked ada in cold water 2-3 times. This is done to prevent the ada from sticking together. Drain the water completely and keep it aside.
  • Boil 3 cups of milk until it reduces to 2 1/2 cups. Then add the washed ada and cook stirring in low flame until ada becomes soft.
  • Add sugar and cook for some more time. The payasam changes to pale cream color.
  • add milk maid. Cook for some time.
  • Mix cardamom powder and switch off the flame.
  • Heat a tsp of ghee, fry cashew nuts and raisins separately. Add it to the payasam. This is optional. You can add if you prefer as it is not added traditionally.
  • Delicious Palada Payasam is ready. Serve hot or chilled.

Sounds Heavenly

I am about to try making this recipe. It sounds very much like my mother's rice pudding only better with what has been added.

thank you.

  1. I do accept as true with all of the ideas you have offered for your post. They are very convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are too brief for novices. Could you please prolong them a little from next time? Thank you for the post.

  2. This is my favorite thing ever. ❤ Palada payasam is bliss. I’m following you ’cause a girl like me who doesn’t know the first thing about cooking needs a blog like this, haha. 😀
