Makhana (Gorgon Nut or Fox Nut) Burfi
Makhane ki Barfi
This is my mum's recipe. It is one of the old fashioned sweet that both my grandmothers used to make frequently. It is less fashionable now, but no less delicious! Mamta.
Makhanas or Gorgon Nut or Fox Nut (Euryale ferox), are the seeds of a plant from lilly family, which has purple flowers not dissimilar to lotus flower. This is why they are sometimes confused with and described as puffed lotus seed, which they are not. The plants are cultivated in ponds all over northern India, especially in Bihar. The Makhanas that we use as food are the puffed kernels of the seed pod.
