This is a phalahari recipe which is suitable for fasting or Navratri. This delicious wand easy kheer recipe is cooked with makhana also known as fox nuts.
Makhana or phool Makhana is seed that is gluten free, high in proteins and has other health benefits as well. They make excellent snack as compared to other high calorie high fat foods. You can also make roasted Makhana in various flavours for snacking option.
Since there are already many kheer recipes on my blog and some of you asked me to post makhane ki kheer recipe for Navratri fast.
There are mainly two ways to cook this kheer. You can use whole Makhana for making the kheer. Or, you can crush it and add crushed Makhana in milk for making makhane ki kheer.
I prefer to use crushed Makhana in this Makhana kheer recipe and before adding Makhana I generally thicken the milk. Adding crushed Makhana and thickening milk makes this creamy and more rich.
So, not only in Navratri you can make this easy kheer for party or otherwise too. If you are looking for other falahari recipes for Fasting you can try sabudana khichdi , sabudana vada , sabudana waffle if you want to try something fancy.
