Who doesn't like Lapsi? Especially for us, we have titauras (sweet and spicy snacks) made up of lapsi, pickles and I hope there are many more recipes out there which we may not have heard of. I am a huge fan of lapsi, and while I am in Nepal, I decided to share this recipe with you, which you will find below. While I was a kid, my mom always made this whenever Lapsi was in season. If you ask me how does it taste - it tastes wonderful! Quick Note: You can make this pickle from fresh ones or from dried lapsi titauras too. Hope you will like it!
