Roasted phool makhana - Guilt-free snack

This is my third recipe with phool makhana (other two being phool makhana curry, phool makhana kheer)  As said before, these puffed lotus seeds are proteinaceous, restoring perfect health to our body.  These can also be roasted and spiced up to form ideal evening snack (like popcorns)  So why wait guys?? just go ahead and give these super-tasty and super-crunchy snack to ur pampering kids...

Ingredients required

  • Phool makhana- one cup
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Pinch of turmeric/haldi
  • 1/4 tsp peppercorn powder
  • 1 tsp freshly roasted, powdered cumin


Dry roast phool makhana on kadaai, till they turn golden brown in colour.  Keep aside.

In the same kadaai, melt butter and add all spices.  Fry the spice in simmer flame, switch off the flame and mix in roasted phool makhana.  Serve hot.

Very yummy evening snack!!!
