Gud Makhana, or Jaggery Foxnuts, is a delightful and healthy snack that combines the crunchiness of makhana (foxnuts) with the rich sweetness of gud (jaggery). This traditional Indian snack is not only tasty but also packed with nutrients, making it a perfect choice for a guilt-free indulgence. Let's dive into this simple yet delicious recipe!!!




- 2 cups Makhana (foxnuts)


- 1 tbsp ghee

- 1 tbsp cardamon powder

- A pinch of salt 




  • Heat a non-stick or heavy-bottomed pan on medium heat.
  • Add the makhana to the pan and dry roast them for about 7-8 minutes until they become crispy and light golden brown. Stir continuously to avoid burning.
  • Once roasted, remove the makhana from the pan and set them aside.
  • In the same pan, add the ghee and let it melt over low heat.
  • Add the PAAWAK JAGGERY CUBES to the melted ghee and stir continuously.
  • Cook the jaggery on low heat until it melts completely and forms a smooth syrup. This should take about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the cardamom powder and a pinch of salt to the jaggery syrup and mix well.
  • Once the jaggery syrup is ready, add the roasted makhana to the pan.
  • Mix well to ensure that all the makhana are evenly coated with the jaggery syrup.
  • Continue to stir for another 2-3 minutes on low heat until the jaggery starts to crystallize and the makhana become glossy and sticky.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the jaggery-coated makhana to a plate or a parchment-lined tray.
  • Allow the Gud Makhana to cool completely. As they cool, the jaggery will harden, giving the makhana a crunchy coating.
  • Once cooled, your Gud Makhana is ready to be enjoyed. Store them in an airtight container to maintain their crunchiness.
  • Serve this delicious snack as a tea-time treat, a festive sweet, or a healthy munching option anytime during the day.
