Herbed Makhana

Who doesn’t like roasted makhanas? Here, we have enhanced this healthy and poppy snack by roasting it in oil. Kids love the peppy flavours of the mixed herbs and chilli flakes, which give the makhanas a nice and exotic touch. Make a whole batch of Herbed Makhanas and store it in an air-tight jar, so you can send it to school in the snack box. It will also save you some time in the morning on hurried days when you do not have time to prepare a snack for short break
