Gothumai ravai or Dalia or cracked wheat is something what we usually make upma for diabetic people. But here is the recipe for a delicious kheer and it is sinfully rich. This kheer is served compulsory in South Indian Muslim weddings. No wedding cuisine gets complete without this kheer and is usuallu topped with thakkali inippu pachadi (sweet tomato chutney) we call it either phirni or kanji. The kheer is so rich that people of all ages love it. Adding condensed milk, milk powder, oats and cardamom makes it so delicious.
I love adding sago or javvarisi especially the large ones but its purely optional. If you are making this kheer in a large quantity the pressure cook the gothumai ravai for a whistle  then continue with the recipe or if you want it lighter skip the condensed milk and milk powder.
