Ada Payasam-Rice Chips Pudding (Kheer)

This is also called Kheer/Pudding made with Ada (aka rice chips). I am using ready-made Ada for this recipe here.This dish is typically made in Kerala for festive occasions . Very easy to make, its delicious and completes a Kerala Sadya (Thali)....enjoy!!

Things you will need:

Ada (Rice Chips) - 1 Packet, about 1/2 lbs
Regular Whole milk - 3 cups
Coconut Milk - 1 can
Sugar - 1.5 lb
Ghee- 2 tbsp or Unsalted butter - 1 stick
Raisins - 1/2 cup
Cardamom - 5-6
Cashew nuts - small pieces ,1 cup

Preparation Method:

Boil the Ada in water until it is soft/cooked.It takes about 25-35 minutes for this process.
Drain the water, add the sugar and whole milk in low heat.
Boil the mixture until it is of the right consistency/becomes thick.
Add 3/4 stick of butter or 1 tbsp ghee and continue cookng for another 15 minutes.
Add the coconut milk and boil for about 10 minutes until the payasam(kheer) is reduced well/ looks thicker.

In a separate pan, fry the cashew nuts and raisins using the remaining 1/4 stick of butter or 1 tbsp ghee until the cashews start to turn light brown.
Add the fried cashews and raisins to the payasam(kheer) and remove from heat.
Add the powdered cardamom.

Let it cool and serve after a delicious meal.
