  • 2 cups Phool Makhane (puffed lotus seed or foxnut) (dried)
  • ¾ cup Jaggery
  • 2 tbsp til( seasme seeds )
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1tbs water


  1. Roast 2 tbsp til till it crackles.
  2. Heat ghee  in a pan,Add makhane/lotus seeds to the pan.
  3. Cook them over medium heat until they become light brown in color and brittle, stirring occasionally. This may take 7-8 minutes.
  4. PRO TIP Make sure foxnuts/ makhane are crispy and brittle before you move on to the next step. If makhane is not brittle they will turn soggy as soon as we add jaggery to it.
  5. Meanwhile, combine jaggery with 3 tablespoons of water. Boil until it is reduced to half its quantity.
  6. When the gur syrup becomes thick (almost like 2 string consistency), it will coat the back of your spoon.
  7. Another way to check the consistency – take a bowl of tap water. Pour a few drops of jaggery in water. If the jaggery solidifies and settles at the bottom of the bowl, the syrup is ready.
  8. Pour jaggery over foxnuts/ makhane and take it of the flame.
  9. Switch off the flame and add makhana along with til, mix well. Let it cool a bit and then tear them apart. Store in an air tight container.
