Makhane, with their interesting puffed appearance are a favourite with everybody, right from children to adults. While savoury snacks using Makhane are a hot favourite, these lotus seeds also lend themselves beautifully to sweet dishes, such as this Makhane ki Kheer.
Here, roasted and powdered makhane is cooked in milk, till the milk reduces to half. The rich aroma of this milk is further enhanced with intoxicating spices like nutmeg and saffron. This kheer tastes heavenly when served cold.
