Chef Tips:

  1. To further enhance its flavor, you may add Curry leaves, if desired.
  2. If you are fasting replace the salt with sendha namak.
  3. You may sprinkle a little Chat masala.
  4. You may use clarified butter in the same quantity instead of extra virgin olive oil
  5. You may also make Roasted Garlicky Fox Nuts Bhel, by adding chopped onion, deseeded and chopped firm red tomatoes, chopped green chillies, chopped raw mango, chopped coriander leaves sprinkled with chaat masala to the prepared makhana (Fox Nuts). Just before serve sprinkle a little lemon juice. This is done so that the bhel does not become soggy and remains crisp. Mix well.
