I am so so excited about today’s post!! Can you believe its my 200th post, how time flew by and soon my blog will turn a year too. Thank you all for your kind support and encouragement you have given me all this while and I hope I will continue to get more J
Wanted to post something sweet for the special occasion, so here I go with a very yummy Ada pradhaman made out of Ada, I have used a store bought Ada. However back in home the ada is made at home and it tastes really so yummy way better than the store bought ada.
Time Taken for this recipe : 1 hour Serves : 4
Ada – store bought – 100 gms Jagerry - 200 gms * Coconut milk – 2nd extract 1 ½ cup Coconut milk -1st extract – ½ cup Coconut – 2 nos Cashew nut - 8 nos. Raisins - 10 nos Jeera fried and powdered – ¼ tsp Cardamom – 3 nos crushed Dried ginger – ¼ tsp Ghee - 2 tbsp
*increase or decrease the sweetness depending on your taste.
Extract coconut milk
I used two grated coconut. Just dunk them into a mixie, add ¼ cup of hot water and grind it. Pass through a sieve and you get the 1st extract of ½ cup of milk.
Put back the coconut and add another one cup of water and grind it. Pass through sieve and you get the 2nd extract of 1 ½ cup of thin milk.
Boil water in a pan. Wash ada and cook it in boiling water until it becomes soft. Strain and rinse with cold water to prevent further cooking.
Meanwhile melt the jaggery in around 1 cups of water and strain it, so that all the impurities are removed.
Heat ghee in an deep pan, fry the raisins, cashews drain on to a paper towel.
To the same add the cooked ada and saute in ghee for 5 minutes adding more ghee if required at medium heat.
Now take the 3 tbsp of the 1st extract milk and put in the fried jeera mix and keep aside.
Now add the melted jaggery, cook at medium heat stirring in between. When it thickens, add the 2nd extract coconut milk. Reduce the flame and cook until it becomes thick. Now add the 1st extract coconut milk.
Mix well and add the dry ginger powder, cardamom and cumin powder mix.
Give it a nice mix, cook for 2 minutes at low flame and switch off. Garnish with the fried cashews and raisins.
Serve it hot or chilled J
