An Indian snack which is very healthy & digestible

Roasted Makhana Namkeen Recipe

It’s a very healthy recipe made by makhana, nuts & dry fruits. Makhana or Phool makhana is also known as Fox nuts. This is very healthy, light & digestible. It is an Indian snack which can be eaten anytime and any fast.

Cook Time: 10 mins
Servings:  2-3


Ghee (Clarified butter) 1-2 tbsp
Makhana (Fox nuts) 1 cup
Almonds 2 tbsp
Cashew nuts 2 tbsp
Raisins 2 tbsp
Pistachios 2 tbsp
Dried coconut slices 2 tbsp
Rock salt (Sendha namak) to taste
Black pepper powder ½ tsp
Amchur powder (dried mango powder) ¼ tsp
Sugar Optional ¼ tsp


Heat 1-2 tbsp of ghee in a pan on medium heat.

Take makhana, cashews and almonds and roast together in a pan, stirring constantly till they get roasted and become crispy. You will notice very light brown color. After that remove it from pan and kept in a bowl. Also, roast the coconut slices in the same pan without any ghee for a few minutes. Add it to the same bowl. Mix pistachios and raisins in it.

Here I have not roasted pistachios and raisins. 

Now while everything still warm. Add salt, pepper, sugar and amchur powder.

Stir well, so everything is coated well with the makhana and nuts.

Let it cool down completely.


When this namkeen is completely cool down, you can store this in an airtight container.

You can increase or decrease the amount of any nuts or dry fruit.
