We have mostly come across makhanas as fasting food, although there are some people who enjoy them as tea time snacks as well. But if your sweet tooth is craving something, did you know that makhana can help? Well, back in the days, when deep-fried malpuas, syrup-doused sweets and crispy boondi ruled the roost and cholesterol and triglyceride were alien terms, a gluten-free, antioxidant-rich dessert also made our hearts sway. Ladies, we’re talking about makhana kheer.
Kheer is the most loved Indian dessert. It is made in Indian homes to celebrate almost every occasion, festival or any special event. And today, we have Vibha Batra who will share the best and healthy recipe of makhana kheer. She says, “Makhana kheer is a humble and healthy alternative to rice kheer.”
So, without further ado, let’s take a quick peek into what goes into making the Makhane ki kheer oh so special:
2 teaspoons of ghee
2 bowls of makhana (Also known as fox nuts/gorgon nuts/lotus seeds. Make sure the makhanas are small)
