I didn’t know phool makhana is good for treating insomnia. I am getting phool makhana next time I do my groceries! Masala makhana is tempting and I guess it is a health snack as well.

I have been kicking myself in the back for not having tried phool makhana. This looks so delicious and it would be perfect for snacking. I am not postponing it anymore especially after seeing your beautiful clicks.

We also love this but it has been a while since I made this. Thanks for reminding me of this absolute classic. Also thanks for the tip about treating insomnia with this.
