Flaxseeds are not new to Indian cuisine – they have been available since decades, known by the name of mukhwaas. Flaxseeds are tiny treasure troves of goodness, being high in fibre and omega-3 fatty acids .
These gluten-free seeds do wonders for your heart. The insoluble fibre in flaxseeds also prevents surges in blood sugar levels, making it a good choice for those with diabetes , weight-watchers and everybody else.
This recipe shows you how to eat flaxseeds in a tasty, roasted lemon-tinged form. You can start with 2 tbsps. of these roasted flaxseeds a day and slowly increase to 4 tbsps., spread out across the day and not at one shot.
- Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl, add the lemon juice and salt and mix well. Cover with a lid and keep aside for 1 hour.
- Dry roast it on a broad non-stick pan for 3 minutes till it starts giving a good aroma.
- Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.
