Makhane Ke Kheer | Lotus or Foxnut Seeds Pudding

I often hear my fellow friends saying they don’t get time to cook or cooking takes time, and this means dessert is one thing which normally goes out of window. I am sharing this step by step pudding recipe of Lotus seeds, also known as Foxnut seeds which can be made in jiffy. It is more commonly known as “Makhane Ke Kheer” (मखाने की खीर).  This is phalahari kheer recipe that suitable for Navratri fasting or vrat or any upwaas, like Mahashivratri. Makhana is healthier than any other cornflake cereals or popcorn, hence I normally roast it and keep it in jar and simply munch it when hungry.

Makhana, is a non-cereal grown in the stagnant water like that of wetlands, and lakes. Well known as a fasting food, this surprisingly outweighs benefits of dry fruits such as almonds or walnuts.

Few of the health benefits offered by makhana are:
  • A great source of fiber, at the same time low in calories, which enables weight loss.
  • Patients of diabetes, high blood pressure, heart diseases and obesity, find it useful. Thanks to its high magnesium and low sodium content.
  • Guess what? It even helps as anti-aging agent, as it contains enzyme which repair damaged proteins and is a good source of potassium, phosphorus, iron and zinc too. Wow! Seems endless benefits.
