Capsicum masala rice topped with flaxseeds

Capsicum rice

About:

Capsicum masala rice is made with a blend of indian spices and peanuts.

Health Benefits:

Flaxseed (or linseed) helps reduce cholesterol and improve blood sugar levels for diabetics. The reason why it’s a Superfood is because flax is very high in dietary fiber, it’s a plant-based source of omega 3 fatty acids, and a high source of lignans
