Caramel Phool Makhana/ Fox nuts

Healthy, crunchy Phool Makhana which are considered as the wonder food today.. I have posted a simple version of it here in my blog. Today posting the caramel version of it as suggested by my friend Anita A Burde. It’s the same as making caramel popcorn, recipe of which you can find here in this website. I have used jaggery instead of sugar to caramelize both the makhana and popcorn.


100 gms Phool Makhana

4 tbsps jaggery

1 tbsp ghee/ clarified butter

A pinch of salt

1 tsp ghee to roast the makhana


Roast the phool Makhana with a teaspoon of ghee and a pinch of salt on a slow flame till crisp. Keep aside. Add the jaggery and ghee into a pan. Allow the jaggery to melt and froth. Add the roasted makhana and mix well. Transfer immediately on to a greased plate and separate it with a spatula… Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight tin.
