Kebab & Cutlet Lotus Seeds (मखाना)
Pin It

Lotus seeds (Makhana) are low in cholesterol, saturated fat and sodium. They are an extremely good source of manganese, potassium, magnesium, thiamin, protein and phosphorus. 100 grams of lotus seed will give you 350 calories, which means about 65 grams of carbs, 18 grams protein, and 1.9 to 2.5 grams of fat.

The remaining is made up of water, potassium, sodium, phosphorus and calcium. These are high in fiber, which helps maintaining the excretory tract in proper order.
