Makhana and Daliya Khichdi Recipe (Lotus Seeds and Daliya Khichdi)

Lotus seeds and broken wheat khichdi is delicious and healthy daliya recipe, which made with daliya and makhana. It can be served with papad and pickle. I like the softness of daliya which cooked in onion and tomatoes masala. To get crunchiness in this recipe, sprinkle some fried or roasted makhanas on the top while serving.

What is Makhana and Its Benefits?

Makhana is also known as foxnuts or lotus seeds, phool makhana come from a plant called Euryale fox which grows in the stagnant water of wetlands or ponds. It is used in religious ceremonies in India and is a popular fasting ingredient which used during fasting days. In a 100 gm of dried lotus seeds include 332 calories and contain 64% carbohydrates, 2% fat, 15% protein, and 14% water. The seeds contain B vitamins in rich content, particularly thiamin at 43% of the Daily Value, and numerous dietary minerals, such as manganese and phosphorus.

 

Benefits of Broken Wheat?

Cracked wheat, also called bulgar wheat, gets its name from the process used to create it: whole wheat that’s cracked and then partially cooked. While it’s less common than whole-wheat bread, oats or brown rice, it’s another nutritious whole grain that can enhance your diet, eating experiences and wellness.
