Popular as a fasting food, its health benefits are superior to those of dry fruits such as almonds and walnuts. Some of the health benefits of makhana are: it's a good source of protein, carbohydrates, fibre, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and zinc. High in fiber and low in calories, it enables weight loss.
I was sceptical of how raw Makhana would taste. Later when I tasted makhana, it tasted well.
Just the same as how it looks in the image. Started loving raw makhanas.
Best in taste
