Chutney to enhance flavour especially in low salt diet

Chutney to enhance flavour especially
 in low salt diet

Here`s a chutney powder recipe that can be stored and eaten with idli, dosa or even rotis or rice:
1/2 cup peanuts
2 tbsp ground flax seeds powder
1/4 cup coriander seeds
1 tbsp whole black peppercorns,
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp cumin seeds


1. Dry roast all the ingredients except chilli powder and salt. Keep aside to cool.
2. When the contents become cold, grind them into a fine powder by adding chilli powder and salt.
3. Enjoy this yummy powder with steaming hot rice and a dollop of ghee.

Note you can also add garlic to this.
Peanuts supply you with heart healthy fats i.e monounsaturated fats.
Flaxseeds again heart healthy, also gives omega 3 fatty acids which help increase good cholesterol.
Coriander seeds rich in potassium, provide the necessary electrolyte.
Cumin seeds and pepper both good for digestion, are also antibacterial.

So go ahead just flavour your diet.
