FLAX SEEDS POWDER/PODI WITH CHANNA DHAL AND PEANUTS( FLAX SEEDS POWDER- VERSION 3)
Cooking with flax is an excellent way to boost your intake of fiber. When ground in a pice mill or coffe grinder, flax is also a vegetarian source of omega - 3 fatty acids. Try adding this pleasant nutty flavor of freshly ground flax seeds to cereals, smoothies, baked goods and vegetable dishes.
Flax seeds are high in fat content sp store it in a freezer or refrigerator to maximise shelf life.

This is an other version of Flax seeds Powder/ Podi using flax seeds along with channa Dhal and Peanuts. The taste was really good and kids too loved them and had just like any chutney podi with idli/dosas.
As you all know I do add flax seeds in my cooking, adding a tsp or 2 tsp to any curries or vegetable dishes. They are also good for health and not much difference in taste. This powder is just perfect to add in the same dishes. You can enjoy the nutty and delicious flavor of all the ingredients and is all very flavorful.
