LAPSSI RECIPE (Sweet Broken Wheat)


1 cup Broken wheat
21/2 cups Hot water
2 Almonds
3/4 cup Sugar
15 nos. Raisins
1 tbsp Cardamom powder
3/4 cup Ghee

How to make lapssi:
  • Soak the raisins in 1/2 cup water and keep aside.
  • Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan, add the broken wheat. Saute on a high flame till it turns pinkish brown. Add hot water, partly cover and cook on a medium flame till most of the water has evaporated. Add more water if the wheat is not tender enough.
  • Once all the water has evaporated, add the sugar, ghee and 1/2 cup water. Stir. Place a griddle or tava below the pan and cook on a low flame for 8-10 minutes. The lapsi is ready when the ghee starts oozing out from the sides of the pan.
  • Serve the lapssi hot garnished with blanched almonds and pistachios.
