Phool makhana namkeen recipe

Phool makhana namkeen is a quick and easy to make yummy snack that is also healthy. This namkeen is made with lotus seeds / fox nuts that resembles like popped popcorn along with almonds, raisins and cashews. This namkeen is a mixture of spice and sweet which will surely be adored by your palate. I had this namkeen at a friends place and loved so thought to share this yummy recipe in the blog as well. In this recipe I used almonds, cashews and raisins but my friend suggested adding pistachios and dry coconut which makes the namkeen more delish. Since I am not a great fan of dry coconut I skipped that part in my recipe but if you would like to add roast it along with nuts. Also I chopped the nuts for this recipe but you can use it as whole as well. So let’s get to the making!
