Flax seeds podi

Flax seeds powder| flax seeds podi, healthy podi made with flax seeds and curry leaves. This flax seed podi can be mixed with hot rice or can be had with idli | dosa too. Flax seeds have a lot of health benefits. We usually add this in smoothies or add in salads. After coming to Hongkong we stopped taking our morning smoothies. As the weather is cold, we don’t feel like taking smoothie in the morning. I have heard about Flax seeds powder | flax seeds podi but never tried or tasted it. So i tried that at home and it turned out well. I added curry leaves to that to make it more healthy.

We also liked flax seeds podi with idli dosa too. I have posted many easy podi varieties in Jeyashri’s kitchen. Check out – Bitter gourd podi, Puliyodarai podi, Andhra style peanut and podi Poondu podi..

  • Keep it aside.
  • In the pan add 8-9 red chili. I added less later felt it was very less spicy and then added more.

  • Add 1/3 cup curry leaves. Adding curry leaves is optional. I wanted to add curry leaves in the diet so added it in the podi.

  • Let the leaves turn crispy.
