God Phovu/Godu Phovu -Sweet Poha

Its been a while I wrote something her so before shravan ends I thought of posting a prasadam which is called God Phovu or Godu Phovu which means poha in jaggery and coconut mix. 
Last year I have posted layi Phovu which is similar and this one is whithout Layi/Aralu, for which recipe is Here



The recipe is very easy and here is what we need:
Ingredients:
Thin Poha/Thin Beaten Rice/Thin Flattened Rice - 200 gms approx
Grated coconut or desiccated coconut - 2 cups
Jaggery - 2 cups – grated or powdered
Water - 1 cup normally the jaggery and water consistency is 2:1
Green Cardamom powder - 1 tsp
Method:
Heat a pan/kadai , add 1 cup water and the grated jaggery and allow to melt. Once the jaggery has melted and has almost come to string consistency then add the grated coconut and mix well. Now switch off the flame and allow to cool.
Once the jaggery and coconut mixture has cooled for completely, slowly add in the poha/phovu checking the texture of the panchakajjaya, mix well and the green cardamom powder and mix again. 
Serve it just like this with simple upma or plain or as naivedyam.

Note:
While serving you could mix in ghee and serve and this is totally optional.
Make sure u don’t add too much of water orelse the Paank(jaggery mixture will turn to be runny).
