This is the best way to have flax seeds, I love the nutty flavor and relish having with steamed rice. I need not talk much on the benefits of flax seeds. Having a small spoon of this daily is so good for health.
I have NOT added coconut and peanuts here, if you want you can add, this is optional. This chutney powder you can leave it outside for one week. Also its good to grind in small quantity. Its advised not to use the ground flax seeds for a longer period. If you are adding coconut please after a day or two please put it into refigerator.
Flax seed – ½ cup
Sesame Seeds – 3 tbsp
Garlic Pods - 6 cloves
Tamarind – a very small ball
Dry red chilli - 10 nos.
Salt - to taste
Hing – ¼ tsp
Channa Dal – ¼ cup
Urud Dal – 3 tbsp
Curry leaves – 2 sprigs
In a pan dry roast flax seeds in a low flame until it splutters and keep it aside
Now add to the same pan, dry roast both the dals and sesame separately and set aside this also
Add garlic, curry leaves, the main spuce red chilli and fry well
In a mixer add the hing , garlic curry leaves, red chilli and pulse it well. To that add all the other dals, flax seeds, salt and make a coarse powder.
Store this in an airtight container and use as and when required.
You can enjoy this as idli podi or even you can add a dash of this on steamed rice or even mix this with ghee and have it. Add a spoon of this in plain curd and have.
It tastes really yummy.
