  1. Flaxseeds chutney is such a healthy and versatile podi. Can imagine how flavorful the chutney must have tasted with lentils, curry leaves and drry red chilies going in along with the flaxseeds!

  2. I love this flaxseed podi, and make it often too. We use it in place of Idli Milagai Podi. 🙂

    Your version of the podi sounds so fragrant and flavourful, with ingredients like tamarind, curry leaves and sesame seeds going in!

  3. lovely podi, Preethi ! loving its versatility as I guess this can be used to top stir fries like vangibhath powder …. I make it exactly the same way with using Toor dal too

  4. I love this masala recipe. I have been looking for ways to include flaxseed in my daily diet but somehow always failed to do so. This one seems handy and I know once I have this powder ready I will use it.

  5. Hi Preethi, I followed your recipe and this is my first time using flaxseed. Love the spicy taste and smell (l added more chilli)

  6. Loved this chutney with super seeds Flax and sesame..I like the addition of lentils here which are enhancing the nutritional value of this chutney.. Looks so good !!

  7. This is really such a versatile and very healthy podi recipe. I can imagine the taste and flavours of it. Addition of flax seeds is a good move in this podi looks so nutritious.
