Makhana Ki Phirni/ मखाने की फिरनी





Makhana is generally used for religious activities and is consumed during fast. Some consume fried makhana with sendha namak and some cook the makana into a dish and consume with kuttu ki poori.
Makhna is made from louts seeds. Makhana just like badam and walnut is rich with potassium, phosphorus and magnisum and thus is really good for health and is a wealthy source of energy.


My family and I love to eat makhana. I usually prepare the makhana gravy or fried masala makhane or makhana kebab for my family. During fast we i prepare the gravy makhana without onions or garlic and it brings out the real taste of makhana. However i recently, on the website of Neha Mathur saw the recipe of makhane ki phirni and just loved it. While preparing this recipe inspired by Neha Mathur, I decided to give it a little twist of my own. Thus, I added poppy seeds paste which make it more delicious and creamy.
I give full credit of  Neha of inspiring me to make this recipe and would like to thank her for giving us such a wonderful  recipe.
