Dudhantley Fove is a simple offering made to God during the early morning Pooja of Deepavali in Goa. This is basically a type of Kheer made with beaten rice and milk.

Goans celebrate Deepavali with many varieties of Fove/ Poha/ Pova/ Beaten rice preparations.

Each type has a distinct flavour and all are made together on deepavali along with Chanyachi usal and Amadyachi Karam.

Goan Chivdo  & Fovache laddu is another crunchy salted snack that is a popular Faral during this time.

The other varieties of Fove are Roasantley Fove, Kallayalle Fove, Fullayalle fove, Batat Fove.

All these are very healthy dishes and you need not wait until Diwali to enjoy these.

Beaten Rice- polishedBeaten Rice - Unpolished red rice






  1. Wash the Fove/ poha and drain off the water. I have used unpolished beaten rice(red colour), but you could also use the polished white beaten rice.
  2. Boil the milk and add the pova and cook on slow flame till soft.
  3. Add sugar & mix well.
  4. Finally add the elaichi powder for a rich flavour and fragrance.
  5. This Dudhantley fove can be eaten hot, or some prefer to chill it in the refrigerator and eat it cold.
