Roasted Makhana - Spicy Roasted Foxnuts.

Roasted makhana
I have already mentioned about the health benefits of makhana in my makhana kheer post. This is another recipe which can be a much healthier choice when compared to popcorn's. I like to munch it in the mid-day breaks. A simple and guilt-free snack to have at any time made from puffed lotus seeds. In India phool makhana is available in big supermarkets or any 'dry fruits and nuts' store.
