Makhana Kheer recipe

  

Makhana Kheer recipe is a healthy dessert that can be consumed during fast also. Try this yummy sweet dish this Navratra. Makhana or Lotus seed or fox nut is a rich source of calcium, protein and gluten free. Good food for weight loss. You can eat them as a snack by roasting them in Microwave or pan for weight loss. You can add little ghee if you are not on diet. Makhana Kheer is a simple recipe, just like rice kheer. Some people use  whole Makhana in the Kheer. I have used them by crushing them, so they get mixed well and give the kheer a creamy texture. So let us start.

1 liter Gold Milk ( full cream )

Makhana Kheer recipe

Recipe instructions:

Heat a non-stick pan, add 1 teaspoon ghee and roast the fox seed on low flame for 5-6 minutes till they become crispy.
Let them cool completely. Crush them after cooling and keep aside.
Take 1 liter milk in a vessel and boil it on high flame continuously stirring.
When it starts boiling, add cardamom powder and chopped dry fruits.
If you like dry fruits in crunchy form, roast them in ghee till they become light brown.
My family likes soft dry fruits, so I boil them with milk to make them soft.
When the milk remains ¾ in quantity, add the fox nut and cook for 7-8 minutes.
Mix sugar to taste and cook for more 7-8 minutes.
Turn off the Gas. Delicious Makhana Kheer is ready to serve.
If you like it cold, refrigerate it for 2-3 hours, garnish with pistachio and serve chilled.

Footwear for women


                          Footwear for women

 
Footwear for women

In older times, footwear was considered a commodity of necessity. Only one pair of footwear was considered sufficient for a person at a time.
Simple and long lasting footwear were considered good to wear. But with changing times,the trend of wearing footwear has changed drastically. There is a huge market of designer  footwear to select from. International brand footwear is also available online on discount rates.
Specially, women are very fond of footwear, along with clothing. They want a perfect match of footwear for their attire. Having 10-12 pairs of footwear at a time is normal for a middle class woman these days.
In fact, half of  the perfect look of your outfit comes from your footwear.
We will discuss about different types of footwear that goes well with a  particular outfit.


Saree & Salwar Suit:



footwear for women


Open toe sandals, go well with saree and Salwar suit. They give a traditional Indian look. Colorful sandals with embroidery and glass work are very much in trend.

Jeans & Trousers:


Footwear for women


Long boots and chunky heel boots go very well with Jeans & trousers, specially during winter season or if you are on a vacation to some cold place. Don,t try them during Summers, as your foot will suffer from perspiration and discomfort.

Gown, Mini, Skirt:


footwear for women


My first choice for this outfit is belle & stiletto, they just give a perfect and Barbie look with these outfits. Wedges will also give a nice look.
You can choose the color of footwear matching to your handbag, matching with your outfit or in contrast to your outfit.
Pencil heel is very much in Fashion from ages. But they are very harmful for your backbone. It is my personal suggestion, please avoid wearing pencil heel footwear.
If you want to wear heels, please go for platform heel, and not pencil heel.
Before buying footwear, try them by walking some distance. Don’t buy if you are not comfortable, just because of the design.
Branded footwear is little costly, but they are very comfortable and long lasting.
So buy one instead of two, but buy a branded one.
In your collection of footwear, you must have a slipper style, one sandal with strap, belle, wedges and shoes.
As far as color of footwear is concerned, White, black, red, brown, golden and silver color is must in your collection. These colors will match with most of your outfits.
Last but not the least, avoid buying footwear online, there is difference in sizes of different brands and you can’t check the comfort by trying them.
