Recipe Type: Snack
Ingredients
  • 1 teaspoon ghee (or more, as needed)
  • 2 cups of makhane
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. In a heavy skillet or kadhai (wok) heat a teaspoon of ghee, and swirl it around to coat the sides.
  2. Add 2 cups of makhane and toss well. Keep stirring over a low-medium flame for a few minutes until browned.
  3. They can guzzle up several tablespoons of ghee if you choose to use that much! But even as less as half a teaspoon will do just as well, providing the essential aroma while roasting. (I couldn't resist adding in one more teaspoons of ghee as I stirred!
  4. When nicely browned, aromatic and crisp, add the salt and pepper. Mix well.
