Flax Seed Chutney Powder

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.
