In most of the Gujarati households, the utmost importance is given to Lapsi and considered as an auspicious dish that is mostly prepared with broken wheat or coarse wheat flour. No matter how many various types of desserts or sweets you can make and serve but Lapsi has to be made if there is good news in the family such as purchasing a new home or there are wedding bells and on a Gujarati New Year for Shakan (as a good luck measure for the coming year)

Although on the occasion of Diwali, I prepare copious sweet and savoury dishes for the celebrations but never fail to prepare Lapsi, on a new years day for annakut ( offering the food to god) maybe a small amount, that's the tradition I love to follow.

Being a foodie and a food blogger, experimenting with food comes naturally to me, lol many times I get wild ideas in the middle of the night and start conjuring up recipes in my mind. That is how the idea came about for Caramel Fada Lapsi. Oh yes, definitely caramel is my secret pleasure, as soon as I open up the tin I waste no time in dipping my finger.
