Flaxseed Idli Podi Recipe | Flaxseed Powder for Idli

flaxseed idli podi

After I posted my Strict PCOD Diet Chart, some of my viewers asked for some recipes using flaxseeds. This will be the first post in this blog, using flaxseeds. As I said earlier, flaxseeds are rich in omega3 fatty acids. Hence, it is used as a home remedy for polycystic ovarian syndrome. Adding it to you regular diet helps in weight loss too.

This idli podi recipe is very easy to make. I usually make this powder. It is similar to how I make my regular idli powder. Simply, it is an addition of flaxseeds to regular idli powder procedure. It will be very tasty. It can be used as a side dish for idlis and dosas. Add little gingelly oil, if you wish. I would suggest you to make in a very minimum quantity first and try. It will taste better, if it is more fresh. Come let us see the recipe.
