Lotus Seed Munchies

Doesn’t there always come a time, either while watching TV or reading a book, when you yearn for something crunchy to munch on? This is just the right snack for such times; it is healthy, tasty, and absolutely munchable.
Lotus Seeds – 3 cups
Turmeric – 1 ½ tsp
Chaat masala – 1 tsp
Olive oil/any cooking oil – 1-2 tbsps
Salt to taste
In a wide pan, heat the oil (on low heat) and add the turmeric, chaat masala, and salt and mix well. Now add the lotus seeds and incorporate all the masala onto it. Sauté for 5-6 minutes or until the lotus seeds become crunchy. Bon Appétit.  
Note – I usually make just enough for one or two servings so haven’t found the need to store it. But I guess it will keep fresh in an airtight container.
