Foxtail Nut (Makhana) Trail Mix Recipe

Foxtail Nut (Makhana) Trail Mix Recipe

Makhanas or Foxtail nuts are fasting-friendly not just because they’re “permitted” foods but also because they are packed with nutrition.

Skip the curry leaves and turmeric and replace the roasted gram with other nuts in this recipe to make it fasting-compliant or play around with your favourite spice mixes (try Molagapodi!) and dried fruit for a variation.



1. Roast the Makhana in a dry pan for 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Remove.

2. In the same pan, add the ghee. When it is hot, add the asafetida, turmeric, curry leaves, peanuts, gram and raisins.

3. Toss well to coat.

4. Next, add the Makhana, cumin seed powder and chaat masala and continue to toss over medium heat until the Makhana are well coated and crisp.

5. Cool and store in an air-tight container.
