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.

I have dry roasted the makhanas(forgot to use ghee) and made a coarse mixture. Can I roast the powdered mixture in ghee before making the kheer?

How many grams in 1 serving?

Tarla Dalal    The serving size is not measured in grams. It is the approximate portion a person can eat in a meal.

VN Dalmia    Ok, thanks, but that may differ from person to person. So how many grams in 5 servings? How many grams does the recipe make? I had 50 grams today. How do I know whether I had half a serving or more or less?

Tarla Dalal    We don''t weigh the serving portion in grams. The serving size mentioned is based on a portion of the food a person would usually eat in a meal.

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