How to make Goda Phovu:
- Crush the cardamom seeds in a mortar pestle to a fine powder.
- Sift the parched rice in a strainer so that the powder falls off. In a mixing bowl add (sifted) thin poha, shredded coconut, grated jaggery, ground cardamom and mix well with hands. Coconut softens the parched rice. If required, sprinkle few drops of coconut water or milk or water. You don't have to be precise with the ingredients, all are approximate amounts.
