Godu Phovu (instant)

                       Godu Phovu is a traditional konkani naivedya prepared on  auspicious occasions and festivals. This is a very simple naivedya prepared with thin variety phova and jaggery, flavoured with cardamom. I have already shared the panka version (making with jaggery syrup) HERE in this blog.
                       Today I would like to share the instant version of godu phovu, for those who don’t find enough time to make the jaggery syrup. But this should be consumed within  3-4 hours of preparation because it may get spoiled, as the coconuts are raw and not cooked.


  • Coconut – 1 cup grated
  • Jaggery  Powdered – 1/2 cup
  • Thin Variety – 3/4 – 1 cup (as needed)
  • Cardamom Powder – 1 tsp
  • Ghee – 1 tsp


  1. Mix together grated coconut and powdered jaggery until the jaggery is well coated with the coconut.
  2. Add cardamom powder and required quantity of phova. Mix well till everything get together.
  3. Add a tsp of ghee and  mix again.
  4. Godu phovu is ready for the naivedya.


  1. Dont keep this out for long as it may get spoiled
  2. If kept in fridge, they remain good for some more hours.
  3. Can be served as a evening snack too, in that case add phova to the coconut jagery mixture just before serving.
