Phool Makhana Paratha - Lotus Seeds Paratha Recipe


Phool Makhana Paratha
I tried Makhana Paratha for todays breakfast.I added all spices just like we make methi paratha and it turned out so soft and flavourful.Though makhana's flavour was very mild that I could hardly find out any difference,the parathas were very soft.

I am buying phool makhana(lotus seeds) often these days as mittu has started to like it,she loves to munch on ghee roasted makhana with a drizzle o chat masala powder, perfect snack for evenings.

My Notes:

  • Roast makhana until crisp, try tasting one to check if its done.
  • You can even add a pinch of chat masala powder.
