Lapsi - Gujarati Sweet

2:45 PM Chandra Karthikeyan 0 Comments

Lapsi is somewhat similar to rava kesari in making. Taste is wonderful and it contains goodness of broken wheat.

  • Broken wheat/ dhalia - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar  1/2 cup
  • Water - 2 cups
  • Cardamom powder - pinch (i used whole cardamom)
  • Raisin - 10
  • Cashew - 10
  • Chopped almond - little for garnishing
  • Ghee - 2 tbsp
  • Add a tsp of ghee in a pan and slightly roast raisin and cashew, keep this aside.
  • Heat ghee in the same pan, slightly roast broken wheat for 3 to 4 minutes. 
  • Add water and let wheat cook nicely. This takes about 15 minutes, then add cardamom, sugar, raisin and cashew, cook in low flame for 5 minutes till the ghee separates.
  • Garnish it with almonds and serve hot or cold. 
  • If the lapsi becomes thick, add little milk and reheat for a minute before serving.
