Goduma rava halwa / Broken wheat halwa / Samba halwa

Today being the 1st Friday of Adi masam, I thought of preparing something different for Neiveydhyam. I tried out this halwa. The empty vessel at end of the lunch stands testimony to the taste.

Adi masam is a Tamil month which usually falls between mid July to mid August. This month is considered to be extremely auspicious for performing religious activities and worshipping the divine, especially the goddesses. .

In malayalam this period is called the Karkadam masam or the Ramayan month. There is a practice of reading Ramayan during this month.


Goduma rava  — 1 cup
Jaggery —  1 1/2 cup
Ghee — 5 tablespoons
Cardamom powder — 1/2 teaspoon
Cashews & Raisins — few
