Makhana kheer or lotus seed pudding is super easy dessert to prepare especially in navratri fasting time or any time. It is creamy, thick and delicious kheer which is so healthy and filling.

Makhana or lotus seeds are also called fox nut in english. They are low in sodium and high magnesium content which make them good for those who are suffering from heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity. They have many more medicinal properties which make makhana a healthy and low-calorie snack if consumed in moderation.

To make this makhana kheer first dry roast the makhana, crush them a little and cook in the milk till it becomes a thick mixture. Adjust sugar as per your taste and add chopped dry fruits. Serve hot or chilled as per the choice. So let see how to make this delicious and lip-smacking Makhana Kheer or Lotus Seed Pudding.
