Makhane ki Kheer Recipe | Makhana Kheer

Makhane ki Kheer is an aromatic and flavorful Indian dessert. Makhana is so nutritionally enriched that it’s arguably superior to Dry Fruits! This gluten-free, protein-rich and high in fibre wonder nut is popular weight-loss snack as well.

Makhane ki Kheer is love served in the form of dessert. You can also prepare a health-conscious version of the same by using low-fat milk and stevia.

If like me you also have a sweet tooth you can also prepare Seviyan Kheer and Poha Kheer.
