Doce Bhaji

Doce bhaji is a typical Goan tea-time sweet that is quite popular. My nephew called it a solid porridge when he was little. It is often made for lactating mothers but is enjoyed by all.
Doce Bhaji Recipe

2 measures (milkmaid tin) broken wheat
1 ½ measure (milkmaid tin) sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 coconut – 1 thick coconut juice,  2 thin coconut juices
4 cardamoms, skinned and powdered
3 tblspns ghee

  • Clean broken wheat to remove any foreign particles.
  • Soak overnight; for about 10 hrs, no more as it can turn sour. 
  • Put the thin coconut juice, powdered cardamom, salt & wheat in a vessel & keep stirring with the straight edged ladle, taking care that the mixture does not stick to the bottom. 
  • When the wheat is cooked, add sugar.
  • When the sugar is dissolved, add the thickcoconut juice
  • Keep stirring continuously for about an hour. 
  • If it bubbles too much, reduce the heat. 
  • When it leaves the sides, add the ghee. 
  • On thickening, pour into trays greased with a little ghee. 
  •  Easily spoils when weather is warm. Refrigerate.
