Lapsi dish is a very special sweet dish of Gujarat and Rajasthan. It is prepared with broken wheat also known as Dalia.(porridge)  As I'am not a Rajasthani or Gujrati but this dish is very nearest to my heart,because my family loved this dish!  As normally nobody likes to have Porridge in my life and i used to feed them forcefully but this Lapsi was just got finished within in 20 minutes :-)
