One of the most well-known of Gujarati desserts, Lapsi (fada ni lapsi | dalia sheera) is a very appealing sweet dish of roasted and cooked broken wheat sweetened with sugar and flavoured pleasantly with cardamom powder. Roasting the broken wheat in ghee gives the Gujarati broken wheat sweet a rich brown colour, intense aroma and nice flavour.

Occasion or puja at home and want to make something luscious? Here we have a perfect Indian sweet recipe that is lapsi. Lapsi translates to bulgar wheat.

Broken wheat or bulgur wheat also popularly known as fada or dalia (daliya) is very healthy as compared to rice or any other grain. It is rich in iron, fibre, magnesium and many minerals.

dalia sheera is made with minimum of ingredients like dalia, sugar, cardamom and ghee which are easily available at home. This lapsi can also be made in a Pressure Cooker.

To make lapsi, heat the ghee in a non-stick kadhai, add the broken wheat, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 5 to 7 minutes or till it turns golden brown in colour, while stirring continuously or it may burn. Add 2 cups of warm water, mix well and cook on a high flame till the water starts boiling. To make it even creamier you can add milk instead of water. Cook on a slow flame for 15 to 17 minutes or till the broken wheat is almost done, while stirring continuously. Add the sugar and cardamom powder, mix well and cook on a slow flame for 5 to 7 minutes or till the ghee separates, while stirring continuously. Serve Gujarati broken wheat sweet hot garnished with almond and pistachio slivers.

My mother adds whole spices like cloves and cinnamon to perk up fada ni lapsi. If you make this broken wheat dessert in advance, before serving add 2 tbsp of milk to the lapsi , mix well and reheat it for 2 minutes. I use make this for my kids as lapsi is super healthy and I substitute sugar with jaggery to makes it healthier.
