furthermore, i would like to highlight some tips, suggestions and variations to the masala makhana recipe. firstly, i have used ghee to roast the lotus seed which makes it flavoured and tasty. having said that, you can use also use cooking oil or vegetable oil. particularly olive oil is the closest one. secondly, you need to roast the phool makana in a low to medium flame and do not attempt in high flame. basically in high flame, there is a high chance to burn it and also may not turn it to crisp. lastly, the same recipe can be further extended by adding finely chopped onions and tomatoes as a salad. but may not perfectly fit as a fasting dish, however.
