If you’re looking for a guilt-free snack for the summer, look no further than Twinkle Khanna’s unique gluten-free Makhana recipe.
Earlier this year, Twinkle Khanna’s digital media company, Tweak India, designed a 21-day fitness challenge (called #21Tweaks) for people who were willing to make small changes to their daily habits to ease into a healthy lifestyle.
From healthy diet changes to mindfulness meditation techniques to workout hacks, the 21-day challenge covered all things fitness and wellness.
As part of this challenge, Twinkle Khanna shared her family-favorite Makhana recipe, which is the perfect healthy snack for evening tea breaks and midnight munchies.
Take ghee or oil in a hot pan, add rai, curry leaves, green chilies and then add the makhana.
Stir it continuously till it gets a golden color.
Mix it thoroughly and transfer to a bowl or plate and serve hot.
That’s it — your delicious and healthy makhana snack is ready. Enjoy it with tea, a smoothie, or any other healthy drink.
In her Instagram post, Twinkle Khanna acknowledged makhana’s health benefits. Since makhana is low on cholesterol, saturated fats, and is a gluten-free source of healthy carbs and iron, it makes for a perfect tea-time snack. It can even satisfy your midnight cravings.
So replace all the unhealthy snacks in your kitchen with healthy and gluten-free makhana. If you don’t have time to cook, order our ready-to-eat flavored Nummy makhana today. It’s available in three flavors — Cheesy, Tangy, and Spicy.
