Lapsi is an Indian traditional dessert prepared with cracked wheat, cinnamon, saffron and sugar. The addition of pineapple adds a fruity twist to the dish. Normally, you can go for only pineapple puree, but in this pineapple Lapsi recipe, I have used a mixture of pineapple pieces and puree. This sweet and tangy dessert zinged with cinnamon and saffron is worth trying.
