I would like to tell about makhana . It is also called as fox nuts. I came to know about makhana from my cousin sister. She regularly consumes it and asked me to try once . It's Getting very popular here for its health benefits. It is lotus seeds and the taste is very similar to pop corn . It is usually roasted and we can take as snacks and also add as toppings on soup . Some people fry it with adding oil . It's not good to fry as it lose the health benefits. The health benefits of makhana is good mainly for diabetic people,weight loss, hormonal balance . Image is from Google

@DWDavis They certainly look a bit like popcorn but I don't like that either.

Yes. I do know but I have never tried it so far. But I wish to try it. Sadly, I have never seen this in nearby shops. By the way, popcorns are my favourite. If makhana is similar to popcorn I might love it, I think.

They are also probably a good source of Calcium. I like Kheer with this as the base ingredient. Not aware about Weight loss, hormonal balance etc.

Yeah , in my first attempt I have fried the makhana. I don't know how to have it so I fry it with some spices and it was burned . The next time tried to have it alone . I Prefer to eat them alone without adding anything

I love them and we use them as regular snacks. Good snacks option for diabetics. My husband is from Darbhanga, Madhubani in Bihar and that's the place where they grow makhana. So, it's like our comfort snacks.

@Icydoll I don't fry..just roast it and take them out in bowl. I like it plain also. Sometimes we add a spoonful of ghee when it's still hot and freshly roasted and mix it with salt, pepper powder and if you want add chaat masala.
