I have already posted a recipe for Roasted Makhana And Peanuts and I was amazed seeing so many people liking and trying it out. My husband too loved that roasted makhana with peanuts.

To get the perfect crunchy Makhanas, roast them on medium-low flame until you get crispy and crunchy Makhanas. Store in an airtight container to keep them crispy. If by any chance they turn soft and chewy after 2-3days, roast them on a medium flame for 2-3minutes and you are good to go.
