Broken wheat /gova kanya/ payasam

I wish all my readers "Shubh Navrathri"

Today i am here with simplest and one my favourite payasam prepared by in Mangalore.We call it "Gova kanya godshe" as in konkoni .Gova kano means broken wheat Godshe means Payasam or sweet prepared with jaggery and coconut milk.

Broken wheat is a wheat product made from whole raw wheat kernels which are crushed or cut into smaller pieces. There are a large number of uses for cracked wheat, and the food makes a popular dietary supplement in many cultures. It is made by milling wheat grains coarsely. Wheat is cleaned and husked and then processed to the required size. It is highly nutritious as it does not undergo refining.

When the broken wheat is cooked, it has a very hearty, warm aroma and a grainy, delightful taste. It is slightly nutty and chewy. Broken wheat may be ground into coarse, medium and fine kernels.It is also calles as Cracked wheat, Dalia, Bulgar, Burghul, Fada, Lapsi, Bulgar Wheat.

  • 1 cup Broken wheat
  • 300 grms Jaggery or to taste
  • 3cups Water
  • 2 tbsp Ghee
  • 1 tsp Cardamom powder
  • 2 cups thick coconut milk
  • 2 cups thin coconut milk
Cooking Directions
  1. Wash the cracked wheat in water thoroughly and cook in 2 cups of water in an open pan until it gets soft, make sure it does not get mashed up. Alternately you can use a pressure cooker to cook the same, but make sure to cook for a whistle and turn off the stove. Let it cool and the rest of the cooking can be done in an open pan for 5-10 minutes or until the wheat gets soft. If it starts to stick to the bottom add little bit of water and then continue to cook.
  2. Meanwhile in another pan mix jaggery with 1 cup of water and dissolve it completely. Just before it starts to boil remove from fire and filter the jaggery syrup, Add the syrup to the cooked grain. Stir well until the jaggery gets fully blend into the cooked wheat. Stir continuously. Mix well and add thin coconut milk. Stir until it starts to boil. Next add the thick coconut milk and cardamom powder. Give a final mix and remove from the fire. Garnish with ghee roasted cashew nuts and raisins and serve.
How to prepare coconut milk:
Grate coconut and grind it with 2 cups of water to smooth paste.Once it is ground,pour it to strainer squeeze it well to get the 1st extract milk or thick coconut milk.
Transfer the squeezed coconut again to a blender and add 2 cups of water and grind it again.Strain this again and extract the milk,now you'll get thin coconut milk.

  • If you are using good quality jaggery avoid this step and add jaggery directly to the cooked wheat and proceed.

Kurukku payasam...Healthy kerala style red rice pudding

 Rice payasam is usually a heavy, occasional indulgence, it's pretty easy to cut some corners to turn this former guilty pleasure into a healthy, diet-friendly treat!


 Today i am here with a traditional kerala style payasam. Red boiled rice. The red rice is also known as the unakkalari by kerala peoples. If you cannot find red rice in store then you can buy Rose Matta rice or you can use some any non-sticky rice like brown basmathi for preparing this type of payasam .This is a very healthy pudding as it is made with red rice and jaggery. Red rice , rich in fiber and is a good source of manganese and selenium. Jaggery is rich in iron and is definitely a better choice than sugar.

This recipe combines coconut milk and red rice or brown rice to result in a delicious, creamy dessert. The coconut milk cooks the rice into a perfectly soft texture, and with a tad of sweetener and a dash of cinnamon, this rice Payasam is the poster child for sweet comfort food. Enjoy!
