Cardamom powder 1 Teaspoon
Clarified butter 1/4 Cup (4 tbs) (ghee)
Warm water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
For garnishing
Almonds 1 Teaspoon , blanched
Pistachios 1 Teaspoon , blanched



1. In a heavy bottomed pan, heat ghee, add the broken wheat. Saute on a high flame till it turns pinkish brown.

2. Add warm water, and cook on a medium flame till most of the water has evaporated. Add more water if the wheat is not tender enough.

3. Once all the water has evaporated, add sugar and stir well. The lapsi is ready when the ghee starts oozing out from the sides of the pan. Add cardamom powder and stir well.


4. Serve hot garnished with blanched almonds and pistachios.
