Makhane, phool makhane or lotus seeds are loaded with nutrients and are a good source of protein, calcium and iron. My mom used to simply roast these with little ghee and it was our favorite snack to munch on while studying. Now my son is also a big fan of these and keep asking me to make it for him. These can also be eaten during fasting and with the Navratri approaching, I thought to post this simple but yummy recipe. Here it is.
All you need is
Makhane - 2 cups
Ghee - 1 tsp
Salt to taste ( If making for fast, use sendha namak )
Black pepper powder - 1\4 tsp ( optional )
Method of preparation
Heat ghee in a heavy bottom pan.
Add makhane and salt.
Add black pepper powder if using.
Roast for 5-6 minutes till slightly browned and crispy.
Cool and store in an airtight container.
