Flaxseed chutney powder

Flaxseed powder2


I tried to prepare a spice powder with these flax seeds and it was a hit in my family. Try it yourself and taste the health and deliciousness. And it involves very simple and fast preparation.

Health Benefits:

FlaxΒ is an ancient global food crop as well as a source of textile fiber and linseed oil.

The seed of the plant is highly nutritious, supplying generous amounts of protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Flaxseed- 1/2cup

  • Almonds takes a bit longer time compared to flax seeds so roasting separately helps in even roasting.
  • And make sure to roast in a medium low flame
  • Peanuts can be used in place of Almonds

  8. I have made dukkah before, but using hemp seeds for omega 3s instead of the flax. The one place I differed, though was roasting all the spices and nuts except for those high in omega 3 as high temperature s break down the oil, especially roasting or frying.
    If the recipe was followed but the flax was ground and added unroasted there might be a small difference in taste but it would be more nutritious.
    Just a suggestion, and I really enjoy your recipes. Making healthier versions of dishes is something I love doing, and I enjoy your take on Indian cuisine.


  9. Very innovative. I’ve to try this definitely.
