  • Now dry roast sesame seeds until they change color and take them out on a plate.

  • Flaxseed is a non-toxic, dietary wholegrain composed of omega-3 fatty acids and a lignan complex (FLC) with potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-fibrotic properties.
  • Loaded with protein, carbs, fiber,omega-3 fatty acids, and B-Vitamins, these are a powerhouse of nutrients.
  • This chutney is rich in fiber and aids digestion.
  • Prefer having raw and freshly powdered flaxseeds as the Omega-3 in them is sensitive to heat and air exposure.

      Soaking flaxseeds in this recipe with give it a gel-like consistency and also since Omega-3 in them is sensitive to heat and air exposure. As for the sesame seeds, yes you can soak, pat dry and then roast them before adding it to the recipe.
