Few weeks back when my in laws visited us they got us 5 kgs of fresh apples. After they left it was just the three of us to finish the entire booty. Since then I have been on a pursuit to use them wisely in different recipes. I made Apple bread, Apple Chutney and now Apple Lapsi.

Apple Lapsi is a famous Rajasthani and Gujarati dessert which is nutritious and full of flavour. I zeroed down on this recipe because I thought this will be a nutritious treat for my little boy. As thought it came out delicious. The fruity taste of apple and cardamom made it yummilicious.

Lapsi refers to broken wheat which is more commonly known as Dalia or Daliya, Bulgar or Bulgur or Bulghur or Burghul, Cracked wheat, Fada, Godhumai Rava. The simplicity of this dessert makes it even more inviting.
