In a heavy bottomed pan, add 1 tbsp ghee, add Phool Makhana/Lotus Seeds and slow roast it in low flame until it turns golden and crisp. Switch off the stove and transfer it to a plate.

After it cools down, transfer the phool makhana/lotus seeds to the ziplock, close it. Roll the rolling pin over it to crush the lotus seeds.

In a heavy bottomed sauce pan, add milk and let it boil on low flame so that the milk thickens and reduces a little.

Now add the pounded makhana and mix really well. Simmer this for 5 minutes until it becomes creamy and soft.

After 5 minutes, add the sugar and give a good stir.

Add elachi powder, nutmeg powder and let it boil for another 5-7 minutes.

The kheer will thicken, add few strands of saffron and switch off the stove.

Finally add thinly sliced almonds, pistas and cover it and keep the kheer for 10 minutes, so that all the flavor will infuse into the phool makhana/lotus seeds.

Tada! Makhana Kheer is ready to be enjoyed. You can serve it either cold or at room temperature.
