The ada pradhamam is a sweet treat of coconut milk, jaggery and rice ada. It is a traditional dessert of kerala. Payasam/ Kheer especially Pal ada payasam and ada Pradhamam are popular during the festival of onam. Onam is incomplete without a bowl of Ada Pradhamam. I have used readymade rice ada(rice flakes) for quick preperation. Cashews, Coconut Chunks can be roasted in ghee and added in for more richness and crunchiness.
