When festivals are around and sweets are in demand let’s make some home made sweets with Lyva Organic Chia seeds.
Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plant Salvia hispanica, which is grown in Mexico. “Chia” means strength, and it used used as energy boosters. It contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.
Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds. About 2 tablespoons of Chia contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals.
The mild, nutty flavor of chia seeds makes them easy to add to foods and beverages. They are most often sprinkled on cereal, sauces, vegetables, rice dishes, or yogurt or mixed into drinks and baked goods.
They can also be mixed with water and made into a gel. I have used roasted Chia seeds which adds crunchiness to the barfi along with the almond flakes..
