DID YOU KNOW? Lotus seeds also known as lotus nuts come from the flower pod of the Lotus or Nelumbo genus. The seeds are of great importance to East Asian cuisine and are used extensively in traditional Chinese medicine and also used in Chinese desserts. The seeds are most commonly sold in the shelled and dried form if you can find them, however, fresh lotus seeds are much more desireable but are relatively uncommon in the marketplace. They are sometimes sold as a raw snack. Raw lotus seeds are low in saturated fat, cholesterol and sodium, and are a good source of protein, thiamin, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, and manganese. In India, the dried seeds are called “Makkhane” in Hindi , and they are used to make makkhane ki kheer (a type of milk pudding). In Manipur, the North-East Indian state, lotus seeds are locally known as thamchet and are eaten raw. Lotus seeds are also very common in the northern part of Colombia, especially in cities like Barranquilla and Cartagena.
