    Makhana kheer is an amazing sweet dish that can be relished any time. It is relatively low-fat and it is rich in calcium and proteins. Makhana phool or fox nuts is the most common and popular ingredient during fasting. It has many health benefits and it is easily digestible. Makhana kheer is a delicacy and it tastes best when it is served chilled.
    It is the most popular and healthy fasting recipe. The season of festivals have just started and one is always looking for some nice recipe to binge on during fasting. In many house hold fasting is almost like a feast and my house is not any exception. We Gujarati’s always wait for the sweet dish..it can be with our meals or at times we have it post meals. But be it a normal feast or a fasting feast….sweet dishes are always looked forward.
