About Flax Seeds Podi/Chutney Recipe

Flax seeds podi is blend of flax seeds, channa dal, garlic,red chilli and cumin. I have used channa dal for some texture but you can totally skip using it. It is very simple to prepare and tastes great with rotis, rice, dosa, idli, also can be added to sabzis for that extra nutty flavor.

Ingredients to make Flax Seeds Podi/Chutney

  • 1 cup flax seeds
  • 1/4 cup channa dal
  • 6 to 7 dried red chillies
  • 5 cloves of garlic with skin on (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
  • 1/4th tsp asafoetida /hing
  • salt to taste

How to make Flax Seeds Podi/Chutney

  1. Dry roast the flax seeds till it starts to splutter. Keep aside.
  2. Dry roast the channa dal till it starts turning slightly brown in colour. At this stage add the cumin seed and dried red chillies and continue to roast for a minute.
  3. Now add the garlic and roast for few seconds. Remove and cool down all the ingredients.
  4. Grind all the ingredients along with salt and asafoetida to form a slightly coarse powder.
  5. Store the flax seeds podi/chutney in an air tight container and it stays good for 2 weeks.

My Tip:

Make this podi in small batches as powdered flax seeds tend to oxidize and spoil quickly.
