Gulabi Broken Wheat(lapsy) Kheer
A good high protein diet excellent for the taste buds, Its my grandmother's recipe of a bit of improvisation to the conventional kheer.
Cardamom powder – ¼ teaspoon
Milkmaid condensed milk- ½ cup
Rose essence/Roohafza -1/2 teaspoon
Dry fruits- ½ cup
Saffron- a few strands
Ghee- 2 table spoons
Take a sauce pan, add a tablespoon of ghee and fry the broken wheat on low flame till the raw smell vanishes. Pour the wheat into a bowl and add 1 cup milk into it. Place the bowl in a cooker/ microwave oven and cook it until lapsy gets softened. Remove the bowl and pour the contents to a sauce pan. Pour the remaining milk along with condensed milk, saffron, brown sugar, cardamom powder and rose essence/roohafza. Let the mixture cook for 3-5 minutes. Fry the dry fruits with ghee and add one part of it to the kheer. Garnish the kheer with the remaining part of dry fruits and scoop of vanilla ice cream would be adorable. Serve chilled to get the best results.
If jaggery is used instead of brown sugar then prepare the syrup before adding it to the kheer. Take a bowl, add ½ cup water then add jaggery into it. Heat it on low flame until the jaggery melts . Now strain the mixture using a filter and add this liquid while cooking the kheer.
