Flax meal chutney pudi


Flax meal Chutney powder/Pudi

Flax seeds are one of the healthiest plant food which contains Omega 3 fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid. This acid is not produced by the body so need to be obtained from diet. Its good for vegetarians, as these Omega 3 fatty acids are obtained from fish oil in general. Using this regularly in our diet is good and studies said that 4 table spoon of flax seed meal will give 6 gram of protein and 8 gram of fiber.

My mother makes different variety of chutney powder, i love them all. This flax seed chutney powder was what came to know from Maya's - Konkan world. I just could not wait to try this at home, i had flax meals sitting without knowing what to make of it. Before proceeding, i asked Maya about the flax meal, so she kindly replyed that shelf life may be less of flax meal than flax seeds. Made chutney powder with some small change into the original recipe. Maya we loved this healhty chutney powder, thank you for this wonderful recipe.

Sending this chutney powder to..
Smitha of Kadumanga for her event Color of taste-Podi.


1/2 cup Flax seed meal
4 big cloves Garlic cloves
1/4 cup Peanuts
1/4 cup Putani/Roasted Split chana dal/ Dalia
1 1/2 tsp Red chilli powder(or more)
1/2 inch pieces Tamarind
1/2 tsp Brown Sugar
Salt as per taste


1. As i used flax seed meal, slightly roast it in a low flame, till you get a nice smell of flax seeds. Add chilly powder, take off the heat and cover it.
2. Separately, dry roast Peanuts, dalia and garlic cloves. Allow to cool them. Spread it in a flat plate.
3. Now grind all the roasted ingredients+tamarind+brownsugar+salt to a fine powder.
4. Chutney powder is ready to be served with rice, idli or dosa.. even with curd for paratha's.. yummy !!
