Pazha Pradaman- Payasam with Banana |Kids Delight

I always love doing payasam with fruits or veggies. They taste good and at the same time it is nutritious and healthy. I have had this payasam with jack fruit in Kerala. I think it is called (Chakka Pradaman or Ada Pradaman). I wanted to make the same with banana instead of jack fruit. I am sure the kids will like it. I made this and served my little one. He liked it and had couple of spoons. Usually coconut pieces are added to this kheer. I did not add them since my son has not yet started eating that hard pieces.
                                                                     

Ingredients
1 Banana
1 cup jaggery
1 tea spoon cardomom powder
1 cup milk
1 cup coconut milk
1 tea spoon ghee
1 table spoon chopped (Almonds, Walnuts, Raisins and Pistachios)

Method
In a small pan add the ghee and nuts and fry for a minute. Then keep it aside.
In a pan add the jaggery and allow it to melt and then add the banana and cardomom powder.
Keep stirring until the banana is mashed and cooked well.  The mixture will also become quite thick.
Then add milk and boil for 2 minutes. Then finally add the coconut milk and switch off the stove immediately.
Add the fried nuts and mix well.
serve hot or cold. We preferred hot more than cold.
