We all love to snack and especially when reading a book, I love to munch on something and get immersed into the magical world.
On one such day, I made this easy snack which I have been eyeing for a long time.It is lightly spiced and when paired with buttermilk it was so good to eat. The best part was that the kids too loved this one! It came as a surprise for me as I thought Lil Dude would not even taste it,but he loved the crunchy bites and enjoyed his snack!
I have a post here which details all about this ingredient and also there are some recipes with Phool Mahkana / puffed lotus seeds that are easy to make and good to eat as well.
Puffed lotus seeds / Phool makhana -2 cups
Red chili powder- 1/2 teaspoon
Chaat masala- 1/2 teaspoon
Turmeric powder- a large pinch
Salt to taste
Ghee - 1 tablespoon
Heat oil in a pan and add the phool makana and all the spices.Keep stirring so that the spices coat the lotus seeds. When it is roasted, which will take 8- 10 minutes on medium heat, it will be crunchy to bite. Remove from heat and cool .
Serve as a snack / Store in an airtight container once cooled.
This is my first post for Blogging Marathon #71, Week 1, Day 1, themed 'Kid’s Delight – Birthday Snacks'.This is also the theme that Archana has chosen for the Kids delight event that she is hosting this month.
- Use oil for a vegan version
- Pepper powder can be used instead of red chili powder and amchur / raw mango powder can be used instead of chaat masala.
