In Kannada , Godhi means Wheat and Haal means milk  . Meaning , a dessert made by extracting wheat milk and coconut milk . Its a vegan recipe too.

You can use either rice or ragi or in combination along with wheat to prepare this Halbai. As I always love the taste of wheat milk extract ,I consider using only Wheat as the main ingredient . Along with wheat extract , fresh coconut milk is used here . Jaggery is mixed along with coconut milk and cooked on a very low flame ,stirring it continuously. And finally flavoured with cardamom powder and garnished with poppy seeds .

Wheat Coconut MIlk Pudding

This Wheat Coconut Milk Pudding is such delicacy that you can never stop at 2 or 3. How much ever you eat this sweet , you will never feel heavy. It’s a very light , delectable dessert that can be served for any kind of occasion.I made this dessert for this festive season.

Though it’s only 5 ingredient recipe without any fancy ingredients ,one might find extracting wheat milk and coconut milk bit difficult . Apart from that , while making this dessert ,you should keep on stirring the milk continuously till it thickens.These are the only 2 factors because of which I don’t do it often. If measurements are in right proportions then cooking time will be reduced . So that , stirring will reduced and your hands will be saved 🙂

This recipe can be easily doubled or tripled but make sure the time taken to cook and stirring the coconut milk continuously may be bit more strenuous.

This sweet is also an addition to my healthy sweets recipe . It is a authentic as well as as traditional recipe that has been passed down through generations . Hence this recipe is a treasure and goes to my repository.

You can serve this dessert on any occasions like festivals , parties or  even for post lunch sweet cravings as this is very light on stomach and has a jelly kind of texture.Be sure to finish the batch of sweets on same day or else please refrigerate ,if you are using it for the next day.

Notes

  1. You can extract wheat milk and coconut milk separately and later mix together for cooking .
  2. You can add more water for extracting coconut milk and wheat milk . If more water is added it takes more time to cook.
  3. If you are increasing the measurement ,then I insist you to extract whole wheat milk  and coconut milk separately.
  4. Never let your hands down ,keep stirring , if lumps forms in between  then add little water and whisk it using a wire whisk to beat the lumps.
