Lapsi - A healthy sweet dish

This friday was the last friday of Aadi & even kirthikai of aadi maasam. I wanted to make some sweet dish for naivedya at the same time feeling lazy to go to the kitchen. I was not in the mood to go & cook anything. Thought a lot to make something very simple yet healthy & quick recipe. I opened the pantry & found some lapsi rava. Immediately idea clicked in my mind to make Lapsi.

Ingredients :
1 Cup Lapsi Rava/Wheat rava/Fada/finely Broken wheat
1/3 Cup Ghee
1 Cup Brown Sugar
3 cups water/milk & water in 1:2 measure
10-15 broken Cashew,
5-6 Almonds/Badam,
1 Tbsp Raisins,
1 Tbsp dry/fresh grated coconut (Optional).

In a heavy bottomed kadhai/pan heat ghee. Add the lapsi rava & roast till it becomes aromatic or till it becomes 1 shade darker. Add the cashew, badam, raisins and water or the mixture of milk & water. Add sugar. Break all the lumps if any, add coconut if using fresh. Put the lid on the pan/kadhai. Let cook for min. 5 minutes of medium flame. Add coconut if using dry coconut at this stage. Serve hot.
