Falahari Makhana Chivda

Falahari makhana chivda is a very light snack and easy to make and I love it. It's so handy when you want something to snack on, makhana or lotus seeds are a powerhouse of nutrition, rich in fibre and low in calories too. Makhana is widely used in Indian cuisine like roasted makhana, makhana kheer, raita, curry, etc. I made this super easy and delicious makhana chivda. We all love sweet and tangy chivda recipes or mixture recipes at home. This healthy yet delicious snack is made with sago, makhana, dry fruits, peanuts, coconut chips, and some basic spices that are easily available at home.

What is makhana?
Makhanas is also known as fox nuts, Euryale Ferox, lotus seeds, gorgon nuts, and Phool makhana. These seeds are often used in quite a few Indian sweets and savouries like kheer, or makhana curry, roasted as well. Also eaten as an evening tea-time snack.

You just need few minutes to make this crunchy snack. Make a big batch and store it in an airtight container and enjoy whenever required. Makhana chivda is a crunchy, delicious, light and easy snack to prepare at home.
