Since this roasted makhana (nikori)I am posting specially for fasting (vrat) I am following fasting rule so there's no turmeric powder, table salt and chaat masala, though some people eat chaat masala during fast, so it's up to you whether you want to add chaat masala if making this for fasting. For non-fasting days you can add turmeric powder too, or it turmeric powder is also allowed with your family vrat rules then go ahead add haldi for upwas too:).


Do you know Phool Makhana or Foxnuts have great medicinal properties, it strengthens the heart and is very useful in anemia, strengthens body and increases energy level and also help to increases quality and quantity of semen, female infertility and many other. And it's great way to enjoy makhana, enjoy vrat (upwas) days with healthy snacks.
