“Gudia, I would like to eat our simple and traditional food” informed my paternal aunt during her first visit at my home. The very popular rustic treats from rural India Daal Baati and Lapsi (couscous dessert) are on her menu for most of the days. "But both the recipes are way too simple, your small Gudia of yesteryear knows to cook many varieties now, aunty" I tempted her with many food choices. "Some other day, this time lets keep it simple" and she changed the topic of conversation. Huh..of all the exotic desserts I know she opted for Lapsi, a simple 3 ingredient recipe!
- 1 cup of broken wheat/couscous
- 2 cups of hot water
- ½ cup of jaggery
- ½ cup of ghee
- 1 tsp cardamom powder
- Handful of nuts (almonds/cashew)
