Make a soft batter with the 1/2 milk and Maida. Drop small quantities of the batter over pieces of plantain leaf, till them to spread the batter, roll and drop them in boiling water and cook. Unroll the leaves and let the ada fall into another vessel. Chop the bigger pieces of ada and keep aside.
Keep a large shallow, heavy bottomed vessel on fire and add 11/2 dsp. butter and sauté the ada for a little while. (If it is over done the ada gets hard). Then add gradually milk, water and sugar mixed together and stir constantly. When it thickens add the cardamom powder, nuts and raisins. Stir well and remove from fire. Keep stirring until the milk cools. This is better when chilled
