MakhaneyKikHEER_fEATURED1
Navratras are approaching and this recipe is simply ideal for all those who wanna fast and also for those who wanna taste the Navratri food despite non fasting 😛 I know many such people in my family including my husband. I never tasted this kheer until my mother in law made it soon after I got married.

It tasted amazing and I learnt from my Mother in Law and now I am sharing it with you. For those who are unaware of Makhanas or Phool Makhanas, they are nothing but Lotus dried seeds also known as Foxnut. You can eat this during any vrat or any festivity.

Directions:
1. Put Makhanas in a bowl and soak them in water for couple of hours or so till they become soft and gooey.

2.  Coarsely grind the soaked makhanas in a blender. You can also make a smooth paste if you prefer but I like it chunky. Set aside.
