Lapsi (Broken wheat dessert)

Lapsi is a Gujarati dessert made with broken wheat. Broken wheat can take a long time to cook but here I have done the dessert in a pressure cooker, thus making it very simple and easy to prepare. There are different varieties in which lapsi is made. Usually it requires a lot of ghee and sugar but I chose to use lesser amount of ghee and sugar when I came across the pressure cooker version of lapsi in Tarla Dalal ji's site.

  • Broken wheat - 1/2 cup
  • Sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Ghee - 3 Tbsp
  • Raisins - 1 Tbsp
  • Cashew nuts - 1 Tsp
  • Cardamom powder - 1/4 Tsp
  1. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker
  2. Add broken wheat and saute it for 5 minutes on a medium flame
  3. Add cashew nuts, raisins and mix well. Cook for about a minute
  4. Add sugar, one and a half cups of hot water and pressure cook for 4 whistles on high fame
  5. Serve hot, garnished with cardamom powder
