Thanks to the blogosphere, I have been introduced to this wonder seed (if I may say so). Apparently it is very popular in the northern part of India. Upon googling, I came to know that it is a very healthy food to be included in our diet.
Also it is very popular as part of Vrat Ka Khana. In certain communities, Makhana cooked with some specifications is acceptable during fasting days. This kheer is just the recipe suitable for consumption during the fasting days. At the same time it is a delectable kheer fit for festivals / parties thereby part of BM #34 for day 3 week 4.
We were excited to try this kheer for the first time. My older one did try it and said she liked it but needs to get used to the texture. She asked me to make it once more so she can better appreciate it!
