Search specific pattern in file and return number of occurence


I want to search for a specific pattern in file



Pattern to search is : "HELLO_UNIX_*****" and not "HELLO_UNIX_***_***_"

I mean after "HELLO_UNIX" there can only be one word.In this case only WORLD and only FORUM qualifies. So output should be 2 in this case. As second row has more words after "HELLO_UNIX_"

Thanks in advance.
