Palada pradhaman is one of the traditional payasam of kerala.Its mainly prepared during the festival of onam.Pradhaman is a sweet dish in the form of a thick liquid similar to payasam, but with more variety in terms of ingredients and more elaborately made. It is made with white sugar or jaggery to which milk or coconut milk is added.(Source - wikipedia)

There are various types of pradhamans like jackfruit pradhaman,parippu pradhaman(made with lentils) etc.Here I have prepared Palada pradhaman which is made of flakes of cooked rice, milk, and sugar.

Today being the last day of Recipe Marathon 2 ,i am finishing it with this sweet post.I am very happy that my marathon race was a complete success.Now i can say YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!:).It was really great running with 24 others.Girls we did it!!!INGREDIENTS
