Roasted Phool Makhana Recipe - Spiced puffed lotus seeds snack - Roasted Foxnuts - Simple tea time snack

I love Makhana taste. It has some nutty taste. It is also high in nutrients. It is also easy to incorporate into your favourite dishes. This also goes for Vrat ka Khana. It is good for dieters too. It is definitely healthier than popcorns. Perfect snack for tea time or for watching your movie.
