Makhana Kheer (Lotus Seed Kheer)

Hello Friends
I know I am a little late, but here I am wishing you a very Happy New Year. I took a short break from blogging due to health issues. But the break is over now. So watch out this place for more superb recipes. And to begin with  2013  here I am sharing Makahana Kheer.


Makhane (Lotus Seed)            1 Cup
Full Cream Milk                       Half litre
Sugar                                      As per taste
Jaggery                                  1 Spoon
Ghee/Clarified butter            2 Spoon

Cardamom powder                 1/2 tsp
 Khoya                                   2tsp (optional)


Boil the milk and keep aside.

Mix nicely. Simmer the fire.  Add sugar, jaggery, saffron and cardamom powder. Cook for about 10 minutes. Makhana Kheer is ready. Garnish with saffron strands and serve hot.
