Who doesn’t like roasted makhanas? Here, we have enhanced this nice and poppy snack by roasting it in olive oil. Kids will 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. Also pack some Masala Corn ( Tiffin Treats) in another tiffin for a perfect short break combo.

Makhanas can be so tasty, never thought. It hardly takes time to prepare this snack. I added some chilli powder, to make it more spicy.They are better options than popcorn. Great munchies for a tiffin snack for a short break. Must try recipe for kids..
