Navratri Satvik Spreads – Day 5

Today, its Day 5! I am not fasting, but my mom is, and i am also getting to enjoy this lovely spreads that i make for her..

People fast in different styles as per their preference, some fully avoid the grains and pulses and eat only fruits and specific flours. Though, my mother follows a satvik diet as we feel it is the best choice.

I was feeling lazy, so dint make anything special today.. Ofcourse, the reason behind the simple spread was also that from past 2 days mom was feeling that the food was on the heavy side.. So, this day was pretty simple with no much on the meal but with a starter, I hope you like it. Do drop in your comments!

What’s in there?

Mix Dal, Masala Alu Beans, Rice, Roti, Sabudana Vada(Starter) with Green Chutney, Potato Chips and Fryums and Malai Pedas

Phool Makhane | Roasted Lotus Seeds/Fox Nuts for Navratri | Vrat ka khana

Fasting is an important part of our lives. It not only cleanses us from the inside but also maintains a spiritual surrounding around us. But, as a kid to me what fantasized about being on a vrat/fast was having “Phool makhane” 😀

If you worry where the hell are you going to find phool makhane in the market, there are groceries which do stock them. Different names in different regions. Makhane is the common one:)

This is something which is a must when you are fasting. And, during Navratri it is always better to stock the supplies for all the days cause you never know what snack you would like (this one is going to be a savior for all days)

Just two ingredients, and makhane are ready 🙂

Phool Makhane | Roasted Lotus Seeds for Navratri | Vrat ka khana
Recipe type: Savory Snacks
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • Phool Makhane - few handfuls
  • Ghee - a tsp.
Instructions
  1. Heat up the ghee. Only a tsp.
  2. Add the phool makhane and stir them avoiding any burns.
  3. It is going to take 5-7 minutes in medium flame and makhane will be ready. Crunchy and shiny!
Notes
Make sure you don't burn the makhane.
And a tsp. of ghee is literally a tsp., not more than that.
I added no salt, you could add some sendha namak, but this works great too without any salt.
I hope you liked it!

PS: No pictures, updating in a while or so.

Until then, Happy CookingShooking!
