  • 2 cups of makhana or foxnuts
  • 1 tbsp ghee
  • 4 tbsp of jaggery or gur
  • 1 tbsp of white sesame seeds


  1. Dry roast the makhana on a heated pan for about 10 minutes until they are crunchy and crisp. Keep them aside.
  2. On a pan add ghee.
  3. Add jaggery and caramelize it on low heat for about 7-10 minutes. Don’t let the jaggery turn dark brown.
  4. Switch off the heat and add roasted makhana or foxnuts to the caramelized jaggery.
  5. Add sesame seeds and mix really well so that the makhanas or foxnuts are evenly coated.


  1. When you are coating the jaggery on the foxnuts, don’t worry if they sticking to each other. You can easily separate them once they cool down.
