Rice Ada Halwa|Rice Ada Halwa From Left over Ada

As followers of swetha’s culinary trials, you guys would be knowing how much I love experimenting with food and creating recipes. I’m going to share one such recipe today. I guess most of you would be wondering seeing the title of this post. Ada halwa? Really? Sounds weird right? Yes, those were the exact words my mother said when i told her about my idea of using up the ada left over from onam purchase 😂Honestly, i never thought the outcome would be palatable. Though i was filled with excitement of trying something new ,i was equally engulfed in the fear of breaking my resolution. Yes, my new years resolution was to avoid wasting food. I have a very poor appetite that most of the time i end up wasting food when i eat out. Keeping those thoughts aside, i mustered courage and proceeded to make the halwa. It turned out too good and i couldn’t be more happier or prouder. This recipe is definitely a keeper and it surpassed my expectations. I not only did use up the left over ada but also used up the sugar syrup left over from rasgullas i made earlier. Do try this and let me know how you guys liked it.

Once the milk begins to boil, lower the fame and add the ada. Stir well for 2-3 minutes.

Cover and cook on low flame for 10-12 minutes.

Check whether the ada has turned soft and mash-able. If not, cook for another 5-7 minutes.

Once the ada turrns soft and mushy, saute on low flame for 4-5 minutes until the milk evaporates.

Now, add sugar syrup and saute on low flame for 7-9 minutes.

Add ghee, cardamom powder and keep sauteing on low flame.

Once it reaches halwa consistency i.e it starts to leave the sides and forms a ball/dough, turn off the flame.

Notes:

  • I used sugar syrup left over from rasagullas. In case of sugar, add 1 1/2 cup of sugar and an additional 1/2 cup of water or milk. However, the quantity of water/milk to be used entirely depends on the quality of the ada you are using. So go by your instinct. The ada should be soft and mashable.
  • You can avoid food colour or use any food colour you have.
  • You can add pineapple essence instead of cardamom powder.
