Lapsi Rava/Cracked wheat Payasam is an easy and delicious dessert which one can make when one has craving for anything sweet. It is very easy to make it these days as tetra pack of Coconut milk is readily available. Though I make mine the traditional way by extracting Coconut milk from grated coconut, the Payasam made with the ready one tastes equally good.
- 2 tbsps Lapsi rava/Cracked Wheat
- 1/2 coconut
- 1 tsp Cardamom powder
- Jaggery syrup as per requirement
- Dry fruits like Almonds, Cashews, Kishmish and Pistachios.
- 1 tsp Ghee/clarified butter
Roast the Rava in a tsp of ghee till it turns slightly golden brown in colour. Drop in the dried fruits and toss for a minute. Extract milk of half a coconut. Keep the first thick extract aside. Cook the Lapsi and the dried fruits in the remaining thin extract. After it is cooked add the jaggery syrup as per requirement. Add the first thick extract of coconut milk. Boil for a couple of minutes. Finally add the Cardamom powder. Serve either hot or chilled.
