Rajasthani Thuli

Servings 4 servings
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 1 cup Cracked Wheat or Bulgur Wheat
  • 1 cup Jaggery or Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Ghee (or vegan substitute)
  • 1/2 tsp Cardamom powder


  • Heat the ghee in a skillet and roast the cracked wheat for a few minutes until it turns fragrant.
  • Cook covered with 2 cups of water on a low flame for about 10 minutes. Or if you prefer, you may use an Instant Pot or pressure cooker to cook the wheat.
  • Meanwhile, make a syrup with 1 cup of water and the jaggery until the syrup begins to thicken and looks a little 'sticky'. This will take about 4-5 minutes. Turn the heat off and add cardamon powder to the syrup.
  • Pour the syrup over the cooked wheat. Let the mixture stand for 5 minutes.
  • Cover and cook the wheat once more until all the syrup has been absorbed. If you are using an Instant Pot or pressure cooker, adjust the cooking time to 3 minutes.
  • Fluff the Thuli with a fork and serve hot with Kadhi.
