Flax seeds and peanuts chutney powder - Jawas shenga chutney Powder

Flax seeds and peanut chutney powder recipe with step by step pictures - Flax seed is also known as linseed, agase and jawas. I always roast and store some flax seeds. Eating two tsp of flax seeds every day is good for health as they supply some essential nutrients. Flax seeds are excellent source of antioxidants, essential vitamins, minerals and omega 3 fatty acids. Besides this, it is also an energy booster. Flax seeds in combination with peanuts make a delicious nutty flavored chutney. The sabzi sprinkled with it tastes great. It is a nice accompaniment for dosa, roti, paratha, idli and curd rice. You can make instant chutney by mixing this powder with yogurt.  Chutney powder is handy when you have short of time in the morning rush.
