Resembling souffléd mushroom popcorn, makhanas possess a light texture similar to puffed barley. Boasting plenty of fibre, manganese, iron and protein, this addictive bite is sustainably grown and a great vehicle for seasoning, thanks to all that surface area to cling to. Bonus: there’s no need to worry about getting hulls stuck in your teeth.
Despite being relatively unknown in Canada, makhanas are low in calories while being high in fibre, iron and protein, and they’re similar to popcorn in their ready-to-eat form. To show the versatility of makhanas, Shifa is sharing an updated twist on one of her favourite childhood recipes: Nutty Cardamom Makhana.
When Dear Snackers founder, Shifa Begmohamed, came across the popular East Asian snack during a trip to India, she was hooked. Now, she’s bringing the snack to Canada to help consumers fuel their mid-day slump without the guilt.
