Flax Seeds And Curry Leaves Powder

4.30 from 3 votes

A simple recipe that ensures the intake of about one teaspoon of flax seed goodness per day. Plus it is fortified with the medicinal properties of curry leaves and has a taste that leaves one asking for more. Have it with idli/dosa or even piping hot white rice and some ghee. This powder is the best way to include flax seeds in one's diet. While adding it to buttermilk, rotis and curries are other options, I personally swear by this powder as it is easier to judge the quantity being consumed. Two teaspoons of this powder contains the goodness of 1 teaspoon of flax seeds. Highly recommended for all the ladies
