Honey Chili Makhana

By CHEF KUNAL KAPUR

Makhanas are rich in protein and hence make an amazing addition to fasting food. The health benefits of makhanas are attributed to their antioxidant and aphrodisiac properties since it improves physical strength, increases stamina, and helps to manage diabetes and other diseases.

Dry roast the makhana with a small portion of cooking oil in a pan for 5 minutes, tossing them regularly to make sure they don’t burn. Alternatively, you can roast them in the oven at 170 degrees C for 5-6 minutes. This will make the makhanas crunchy. Remove from the pan and set aside to cool at room temperature.

In the same pan, heat ghee and add jaggery. Keep stirring till all the jaggery melts and there are no lumps. Turn off the heat. Once the flame is off, immediately add chili flakes and organic honey. They will cook in the residual heat. Pour this mixture over the makhanas and mix till they are evenly coated. You can have them any time as a snack!

Ingredients:

. 150 g plain makhana

. 25 g  organic honey

. 40 g organic jaggery

. 10 g chili flakes

. 5 g sea salt

. 1 tsp of cooking oil
