Godhi/Wheat - 2 Paavu (approx 500g)
Bella/Jaggery - 1.5 Paavu
Tenginakayi/Coconut Shreddings: from 1 medium size coconut
Dry Coconut shreddings : 1 big cup (for dressing)
1. Wash whole wheat, drain water and fry it on a thick pan. Blend it to a coarse powder in the blender
2. Mix shredded coconut with powdered wheat and keep it aside
3. Add half cup water to jaggery and bring to boil. Filter jaggery in a muslin cloth. This step is necessary esp if your jaggery has lot of dust.
4. Bring this filtered solution to boil again till you get a loose 1 string syrup (a drop of syrup pulled btw your thumb and index finger gives you a firm 1 string). If you understand kannada, go ahead with next step when you get gejjepaaka. Switch off the stove and mix in the wheat coconut mixture.
5. Make small balls out of the mixture and flatten them between two palms.
6. Dip this flattened Gulpavate in dry coconut and keep it aside.
7. A day old gulapavate tastes yummy than the fresh one. Enjoy!! this healthy sweet.
