Flaxseed Paruppu Podi/Flaxseed Lentils Spice Powder

My pantry is always filled with different sorts of spice mix powders,i cant survive without them. Whenever i feel lazy to cook up something,i simply mix some spice powder with hot steaming rice topped with ghee and enjoy with a simple spicy side dish,yep its my kind of comforting food. Everyone at home love these kind of spice powders, my recent favourite spice powder is this healthy lentils spice powder with flax seeds.This spice powder is definitely handy,healthy and versatile, you can spice up your curries,your leftover idlies or dosas with this flaxseed paruppu podi.

This spice powder conserved well in an air tightened box can stay prefect for almost a month or more than if you make them in huge quantity.Somehow i love to make this kind of spice powders in small batches,so that i can mix and match the ingredients as i wish. Dont forget to give a try to this healthy spice powder and enjoy the nutritional value of flax seeds thoroughly by consuming this healthy spice powder.Sending to Pari's Only Food for Pregnancy.
