Godhi is wheat in Kannada.  This sweet is made of cracked wheat/broken wheat and makes up for a very healthy dessert.


  • Cracked/broken wheat – 1/2 cup(serves 2)
  • Jaggery – 1/4 cup (powdered)
  • Almond and cashew – 1/4 cup powdered
  • Cardamom/Elichi- 2 pods crushed
  • Ghee- 1 tsp (for roasting of cashews and raisins)
  • Milk- 2 tbsp Optional( for my kid I add milk)

Method :

  1. Pressure cook broken wheat with enough water up to 2 whistel or 10 mins. Let it cool.
  2. Take a heavy bottom pan add 3 cups water or milk (or half milk and water). To that add powdered  jaggery,almond-cashew, cardamom(Adjust sweet as per your taste). Let it boil and then add cooked wheat.  Leave it for 10 mins or so stirring inbetween, add more milk or water to desired consistancy.
  3. Lastly add ghee roasted cashews and raisins.

*Note: Once it cools it becomes bit thick in consistancy, so while making it make it bit thinusing water or milk.

Enjoy it when its warm.

      In Hyderabad-Karnataka region (Gulbarga,Raichur) this i s called godi kuttu.Since the wheat is pounded to break it I guess it is called kuttu after the kannada verb to pound or break.
