Makhana (Euryale ferox) or fox nut is traditionally known to be eaten during a religious fast in India, but due to its immense health benefits, it is now relished across the country. Makhanas are rich in iron, phosphorus and calcium. It is low on fat, rich in antioxidants and helps treat palpitation and insomnia. A perfect combination of taste and nutrients, Makhana for breakfast is the ultimate dish to prepare under ten minutes, topped with your favourite fruit. It will give you loads of energy and make you feel fuller for a long time.
