Rich in protein and calcium, makhana or fox-nut combines beautifully with low-fat milk to make a creamy and delicious kheer. A lacing of nutmeg powder and saffron lends an aesthetic touch to the Makhane ki Kheer, making this a memorable dessert that lingers on your taste buds. Makhana is also a great choice for weight-watchers as it is low in fat.

Good sweet option if u like makhanas. Nutmeg powder gives a very good flavour.
