4. Gradually add the hot water into the pan with the lapsi. Let it cook well until all the water is evaporated. (If required add more water for the lapsi to cook).
5. Once all the water is evaporated, cover the pan and let it cook on a low to medium heat for a while.
6. Check if the lapsi is well cooked, if not, add more water, cover and let it cook again on a low medium heat.
