Good recipe. Can substitute White sugar for gur. Tastes even better. If possible - lightly fry Kishmish or even chopped khajur in addition to some nuts (Kaju or badam) - to get studded Lapsi My grandmother used to make Lapsi....and this one is sentimental as well as very healthy and tasty thankyou Tarla ben for taking care to compose accurate recipes....
