Lapssi (Rich Desi Sweet)

Servings : Serves 4-6

This is currently my favourite desi sweet!


  • 250gm crushed wheat
  • 250gm butter (You can reduce up to 150gm)
  • 1 tsp. fennel seeds
  • 500ml milk (used skimmed milk coz that's what I had at home, but you can use whole if you want it richer than this!)
  • 200ml evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar (you can add or reduce according to your taste)
  • pinch of saffron
  • pinch of cardamom powder
  • almond/pista flakes


Heat the butter, add the fennel seeds, then add and cook the wheat in it until they turn crispy and brown. Add the evaporated milk followed by the regular milk and cook together until the wheat is almost done. Then add the sugar, saffron and cardamom, and cook together until it looks ready!

Serve hot with almond/pista flakes.
