Phool makhana is popped lotus seeds, used in various recipes like snack, kheer or even gravy. Spicy phool makhana is an easy snack that can be made in jiffy. I made this same like I do kara pori (spicy murmura) I had no idea about these phool makhana and have seen at Mustafa here in Singapore. Since I had no idea about it, I never thought to buy but kept wondering what to do with it and how to cook it. Wanted to try first something easy and see how it tastes. At first bite I didn’t like but later it turned out to be very addictive, also same happened with Vj. Since it is really healthy, I thought this is a healthy alternative for pop corn.
- Adding crushed garlic is optional. You can skip it.
- This can be consumed during fasting periods and garlic should be avoided.
Once cooled down, transfer to an airtight container and serve as snack with tea/ coffee.
