Lapsi Recipe | Gujarati Fada ni Lapsi
Lapsi is one of the most popular and traditional sweets of Gujarati Cuisine. Being a Gujarati family, lapsi has a very special place in our house and is especially prepared during festivals and other auspicious occasions. It gets ready with very few ingredients and is a comparatively healthy sweet.
The main ingredient of lapsi is broken wheat/cracked wheat or dalia. Plus jaggery is added for sweetness. Broken wheat is an excellent source of fiber. It is also rich in essential minerals such as potassium, zinc, iron and complex carbohydrates.
This traditional Gujarati sweet is pretty easy-to-make and gets ready with few basic ingredients. Do have a look at our collection of Gujarati Recipes.
