HOW TO MAKE LAPSI:
  1. Roast! Roast the cracked wheat in ghee on medium heat until the color changes and it begins to have a nutty fragrance.
  2. Add Water & Cook! Add in 2 cups of water and stir gently. Cook covered for 10-15 mins until the wheat becomes soft and almost fully cooked. It should still have some texture when you press between your fingers. Add more water as needed, it varies based on the texture of your wheat.
  3. Make Jaggery Syrup! While the cracked wheat is simmering, in a separate pot let 1/2 cup of water come to a boil. Add in the jaggery, stir till combined, and take it off the heat. Keep aside.
  4. Cook with Jaggery! Once the cracked wheat is ready, add in the jaggery syrup, stir gently, and cook covered until all the water evaporates—about 5 minutes. You’ll see everything coming together and ghee starting to separate.
  5. Add Saffron & Nuts! Fold in your cardamom powder, saffron, and nuts.
  6. Enjoy! Garnish with coconut and your Lapsi is ready!
