Movie time snack-alternative to popcorn-Lotus seed healthy snack
Lotus seed healthy snack

This is one of the simple, crunchy snack when we want to eat.This is our favourite evening snack. I like to make it often as it requires less time to prepare.

This is our family’s’ movie time snack which replaces the popcorn. And this works as a make-ahead recipe to store.I posted one simple masala lotus seed in my previous post. This one has some sweetness and tanginess.


  • Lotus seed/Fox seed-2 1/2 cup
  • Chat masala-1/2 tsp
  • Dry mango powder-1 tsp
  • Chilli powder-1/4 tsp
  • Pepper powder-1/4 tsp
  • Palm Jaggery or brown sugar-1 1/2 tbsp
  • Salt
  • Oil


  • Add chat masala in a bowl. Add chilli powder.
  • Add dry mango powder.
  • Now add pepper powder. Add salt and mix everything together.
  • Keep the powder aside.
  • In a hot pan, add oil. In low heat add lotus seed/fox seed and fry until it becomes crunchy.
  • Now add the brown sugar and masala and mix well.
  • Stir frequently to avoid burning the lotus seed/fox seed.


  • Be cautious when frying the lotus seed/fox seed to avoid burning it.

This low calorie, low sodium, low-fat snack is ideal for hunger pangs. Best snack for weight watchers.The home roasted fox seeds are best when less oil used.
