Gavhachi Kheer

One Simple Meal of

  • Salichi Moog Dal khichdi: The green lentil and rice cooked together with jeera and a bit of ghee.
  • Mulya chi koshimbir: White Icicle Radish in curds with chopped tomato and cilantro
  • Multicolored Fryums and
  • Gavhachi kheer: Broken wheat sweet porridge in the bowl.

It was an ordinary day no rhyme or reason to demand a sweet. Yet when demanded have to make it for the sweet tooth Dad has. So I thought it woul be good to go traditional.


1/2 cup broken wheat
1 cup jaggery
4 cups water
1+ 1 tablespoon ghee
1/4 cup nuts and raisins
1/4 teaspoon cardamon powder

Heat the pressure cooker add 1 tablespoon of ghee and reserve the other. Fry the nuts till pinkish. Then add the broken wheat fry for 6-8 mins. Then add the jaggery, raisins and water and close the PC. Allow about 20 mins cooking time or 4-5 whistles. Open the lid and stir in the saved ghee and cardamon powder. Serve hot. The kheer should be sticky n slurpy.

This is not a very rich kheer though sweet yet nutritious with the broken wheat and jaggery. It is the old timers favorite.

  7. Hi!

    I love those fryums so so much....!
    Is there a way you know, that we can make it at home by any means at all? Can you post a recipe / method and ingredients needed? We are not in India but in the middle east, so no way of getting them from the store easily! :(

    If only we get some ideas, we would try it DIY@home!
