About Foxnut or Makhana : A simple healthy snack Recipe

Makhana or lotus seed is Asian water plant which is mainly cultivated for its edible seeds. They are white coloured and round in shape which make them resemble to popcorn. Compared to some dry fruits like almonds, walnut, cashew nuts and coconut, makhana is definitely better in terms of phenol content, sugar, protein, ascorbic acid etc. Easily digestible and with high medicinal benefits, I would recommend readers to add this to their pantry. 100 gms of Fox nut equals 350kcal, 77gm carbohydrate, 9.7gm easily digestible protein, 12.8gm moisture, 0.1gm fat, 90mg phosphorus and 1.4mg iron.

  1. In a wok dry roast the fox nuts stirring constantly for a few a few minutes until they turn slightly brown. Just take care that they do not blacken. They turn sooty very fast.
