Lapsi is a very spacial sweet dish of Gujarat and Rajasthan. It is prepared with cracked wheat also known as Dalia..
This sweet dish is very special to me because my mom used to make it on Navratri Sthapana (First day of Navratri), when we have fast. Mummy make it as Prashad and then while opening the fast, we all sit together and eat Lapsi, Gatte ki khichdi and last but not the least Gol Gatte ki sabzi and chapati :)
Missing those days :(
