ಗೋದಿ ಹಲ್ವ ~ Kheelsa

ಗೋದಿ ಹಲ್ವ/wheat milk sweet dessert pudding
Godi Halwa is nutritious, as its made by whole wheat.

Whole Wheat  - 2 cups
Jaggery - 1 1/2 cup
1 tsp - Ghee
Poppy seeds, grated dry coconut for garnishing

Wash and soak the wheat overnight or for 8 hrs.

After 8 hrs drain the water, grind smoothly with water .

Now filter the ground wheat.

Again grind the remnant left in the strainer, again filter it.

Now keep the filtered wheat milk for about 2-3hrs undisturbed, so that thick milk settles down. After 2 -3 hrs you can notice the thick wheat milk settled  at the bottom of the vessel.

Now drain the excess water.

Now take jaggery in a vessel, add a cup 1 cup of water, bring it to boil, no need of getting paaka/ one string consistency, simply make the syrup.

Now add the wheat milk to the jaggery syrup, put in medium flame, add ghee, add cardamom powder, stir continuously, when it gets thick as shown in below picture, turn off the flame.


Take a plate smeared with ghee, put the halwa in to the plate, garnish with poppy seeds, grated coconut.

It can be had without garnishing also. let it cool, cut it in to pieces.

Its a delicious sweet, can be had with ghee.

Halva (or halawa)- halva origin arabic ḥalāwah), meaning "desserts" or "sweet" is widely used. Usually north India/other countries 2 varieties are known grain flour based/Nut-butter-based. Interestingly South Indian dish is different, they make use of wheat milk..(famous Tirunelveli halwa/godhumai paal halwa)... may be the method widely used...
