Sweetened Beaten Rice (Godu Phovu Recipe)

Godu phovu is just delicious, made as a snack, is served as an offering to God too, then served as Prasad. 

It's made for taneek, brunch at 11am or as a tea time snack. 

It is called panchakajjaya in Kannada, Konkani, if it is made as an offering to God, has 5 ingredients - beaten rice, jaggery, grated coconut, ghee, cardamom powder. It is the easiest panchakajjaya you can make in 2-3 minutes for any Pooja. 

The thinnest variety of beaten rice to be used to make this. Not any other thickness variety. 

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup beaten rice 
  • 1/4 cup jaggery powder
  • 1/4 cup grated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of ghee
  • Cardamom powder

Preparation method:

1. In a bowl mix grated coconut with jaggery powder well using your fingers. 

2. Add in beaten rice and mix well using your fingers. 

Beaten rice should mix well with grated coconut and jaggery. 

3. Then add cardamom powder, ghee on top and mix well. Done.

P.S: Use fresh coconut please for an amazing taste. With fresh coconut you wouldn't even need ghee and cardamom powder, it would taste absolutely delish. 

Stays good for a few hours, until the next day too but softens with time.
