Ada Prathaman

  • 2 coconuts, freshly grated
  • 500gm jaggery
  • ¾ cup ghee
  • ½ cup raisins
  • 5-6 cardamoms
  • ½ cup cashewnuts
Preparation Method:

  2. Next, add 1½ cup water to the coconut and grind it. Extract the milk using a muslin cloth (2nd milk).
  3. Fry cashewnuts and raisins in 1 tbsp ghee until brown. Drain and keep aside.
  4. Boil the ada in lots of water about 25 minutes until soft.
  5. Heat ½ cup water and jaggery until jaggery melts.
  6. Add ghee and continue stirring for a minute.
  7. Add the cooked ada.
  8. Pour in the 2nd milk and bring it to a boil.
  9. Simmer for 2 minutes, and then then add the first milk and the cashewnuts and raisins.
  10. Add cardamom powder, mix well and serve.

Note: To make homemade ada, mix a little water with rice flour until a thick paste is obtained. Spread it on banana leaves and steam until solid, about 10 minutes.
