What a great way to have your daily source of omega-3, if you include a spoonful of chutney in your dinner!
Flax-seeds - back in India we call these 'Javas'. It's mostly made in winter for it's heat properties. Flax-seeds are also great source of dietary fiber.
It is a dry chutney. This is the quickest chutney I have ever made. Here is all you need-:
- Organic sprouted ground flax-seed
- Garlic cloves
- Red chilly powder
- Salt to taste
- A pinch of sugar.
Chop the garlic in to 2- 3 pieces, and toss everything together into a blender. Grind until powdered. You can enjoy this chutney with any Indian bread. Works very well with any kind of parathas.
You can certainly use the whole flax-seeds and roast them before grinding them in the mixer. But I think using ground flax-seeds gives a nice texture to the chutney and it also saves the time of roasting the seeds.
If you use ground seeds, the chutney hardly takes 2 minutes to get ready. I mean it. TWO minutes only! Try it yourself and let me know..:)
