Banana and Coconut Pradhaman/ Payasam

I am not usually a fruit in a payasam sort of person – I love me milk with sugar and cardamom, at times with freshly cooked rice. But the challenge for Avant Garde Cookies for the hush-hush week that Roshni laid on me was using fruits or whatever to make a pradhaman. Thanks for the push, Roshni – We actually loved it and it was almost a meal to have a cup of that, as a replacement for breakfast.

A very simple and quick to put together recipe.


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1 can condensed milk
  • 1 can evaporated milk
  • 1 cup of sweetened coconut (grated)
  • 1tsp of cardamom
  • 7-8 crushed cashews
  • 1tsp of coconut oil
  • 1tsp of butter
  1. Empty condensed milk and the evaporated milk in a sauce pan and whisk together.
  2. Pour into a mixer along with the bananas and blend until smooth
  3. Pour back into the saucepan and start heating
  4. In a separate pan, lightly brown the coconut and cashews with 1 tsp of butter
  5. Add to the boiling mix
  6. Allow it to cook with the pradhaman for about 2-3 minutes
  7. Add 1 tsp of coconut oil before serving


Enjoy :)
