A super-food which you can munch on whole day, everyday. Perfect anytime snack for all.

Makhana (originally called makhan) is a power house of calcium as well as other host of micronutrients as well. The crown gem in the necklace of Mithilanchal. Try hot ghee rost makhana on a pan or microwave with minimal amount of butter and you will never go back to an unhealthy packet of potato chips ever again. Try the gift of "crunch" from nature.


100 grams of makhana gives around 347 calories of energy. There are around 9.7 grams of proteins and 14.5 grams of fibre in makhana. Makhanas are a very good source of calcium. They also contain magnesium, potassium and phosphorus in a good amount.
