Ingredients
Main Ingredient

Method

1. Heat 2 tsp olive oil in a heavy bottom pan, add Makhana/Fox nuts and roast on low flame for 3-4 minutes.

2. Add 1 more tsp olive oil, red chilli powder, chilli flakes, black salt, chat masala, mix well and roast for another 1-2 minutes on low flame. (I could have added all the oil at once in the beginning only but makhanas are so good and quick at soaking up the oil that i prefer to add some in between as it allows the entire batch to be uniformly crispy!)

3. Add lemon juice, mix well

4. Remove from flame, your tangy, roasted makhana /fox nuts are now ready! Enjoy!
