Flax seed is an oldest crop cultivated since the beginning of civilization; a wonder food can help you to reduce and achieve your ideal weight. It can treat hormonal imbalance as it is power house of omega3 fatty acid, which is found in fish too.

Here are some tips; I would like to share with you; how to prepare roasted flax seed powder, which can be  stored for longer and consumed as per convenience for best health benefits.

Add this powder into vegetable to thicken curry and get amazing flavour; sprinkle this over bowl of salad, add into fresh juice and include into curd and raita is ready.

Raita is my version because we use curd (yogurt) daily in our meal. It provides an amazing earthy and nutty flavour to raita …


  • Flax seed: 100 gm
  • Red chilli: 1-2 no. (As per taste)
  • Salt: half teaspoon
  • Black pepper: 8-10 no.

  1. Take a wok, dry roast flax seed, cumin, red chilli and coriander separately (as roasting times are different), allow cooling; ground together till it becomes powder, keep aside.
  2. Note: You can store this for several weeks in air tight container.


  1. Take a bowl of curd, add prepared as per your choice; Raita is ready.
