Fada ni Lapsi

Fada ni Lapsi is a porridge which is cooked with broken wheat along with pure ghee , sugar / jaggery and cardamom . This comes from a Gujarati kitchen .

Wheat has an important role in a Gujju kitchen . It is used in various forms , starting from its original whole wheat berries to the fine milled flour which is used for rotis . it has so many more stages , like wheat bran , cracked wheat and then it can be milled to a coarse flour which is used for Bakhris and Ladoos . Semolina and Maida too are refined forms of wheat .

Wheat is cleaned and husked and then processed to the required size . This broken wheat is used for porridge or Lapsi . When we say Fada ni Lapsi ,  Broken wheat is referred as Fada .

Fada ni Lapsi can either be dry or semi soft . It is purely depends upon your liking . Ghee enhances the flavor but if you are a vegan don’t feel disheartened , you can still enjoy it by using any cooking oil . You have the option of jaggery or sugar to sweeten it , of course you can use stevia too . Cardamom enhances the flavor and if you like nuts , do add them . It’s one of the most nutritious breakfast and excellent for lactating mothers . Go ahead and try , you will surely love it . I have made this for the A to Z Pick One Indian State and Make Three Dishes. This month I have been posting from Gujarat. Come back next month for the alphabets G, H and I and a new state.

  1. Lovely lapsi. Your series theme is quite interesting and involves lot of brain storming to come up with recipes in an alphabetical order, I bet. I missed your posts last month and will go through them at leisure. Just today I came across a plain version of this recipe in a TV Show and it was served with a moong dish.
