Flax Seed Chutney...end of one of the dramas!!

Flax Seed ChutneyI have a seed hater at home!! And a healthy fad food hater as wellany attempts to feed him anything even remotely healthy results in long long long argumentsso when I bought flax seeds and starting adding them (whether whole roasted or ground) to various things, you cannot even imagine the ruckusand I eventually gave uptill while cleaning up I discovered an unused packet of flax seedsdidn’t have the patience to go through the drama all over again so went on the net to see if I could find something which I could try...found a lot of chutney powder recipes using flax seeds but all of them had coconut in it (he is not a fan of coconut either) and then Saada Punjabi Puttar Chef Sanjeev Kapoor came to my rescuethis is his recipe with a couple of changescame out absolutely fab and ‘you know who’ is loving it as well


Flax Seed Chutney

  • Flax seeds, 1/4 cup
  • White Sesame seeds, 2 tbsp

  • Dried red chilies, 4-5
  • Salt, to taste
  • Oil, 1 tsp 


Instructions:


In a pan, on low flame dry roast flax seeds till the seeds start spluttering and you get the aroma. Keep aside.
Dry roast sesame seeds till they change colour and keep aside.
Add ½ tsp oil to the pan and roast the red chilies till they puff up and colour changes to almost black. Keep aside.
Add the balance ½ tsp oil and add garlic pods. Sauté till they go golden brown. Keep aside.
Once everything is cool, put in a blender/mixie jar along with salt and grind to a coarse powder.
