Godhumai/ Broken wheat Pradhaman

Main ingredient for any pradhaman is coconut milk. Kerala,being the land of coconuts, has variety of pradhamans. I have blogged about Pazha Pradhaman earlier. Here is the recipe for another popular pradhaman with broken wheat.

Broken wheat - 3/4 cup
Jaggery - 1 cup
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp

Pressure cook the broken wheat using 3/4 cup water.
Melt the jaggery with a little water and strain to remove any impurities.
Boil the jaggery syrup and add the cooked broken wheat. Boil until the mixture is thick.
In a separate vessel mix 1/2 cup coconut milk with little less than 1/2 cup of water.
Add this to the boiling mixture. Let it simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the rest of the coconut milk and remove immediately from heat.
Stir in cardamom powder.

Note: If the pradhaman thickens too much, a little milk can be added. Adjust sweet accordingly.

Preparation Time: About 25 mins
Serves: 5-6 people
