Flax seeds idli podi is the best way to consume flax seeds in south Indian way. Also you can easily finish off your stock.

I had some flax seeds sitting in my pantry other than some ground flax. So for long time wanted to try something with it. That’s when my sister in law told me she adds flax in small portions to sneak into her idli podi. I was postponing grinding idli podi for long and was going to grind it anyway.

Was working on another post, but it seemed like I could not post yesterday, so suddenly changed my plans and thought of posting this. Yet could not post on time 😆

Coming to this idli podi, since I am posting this as flax seeds idli podi, I adapted the recipe from here and made it with more flax seeds. I found the serving size to be more. This could last me for atleast 4 months 🤣 Also the flax seed’s flavour is making the idli podi totally different from the regular one. You can add flax seeds in smaller ratio to your regular idli podi or something with dhaniya like in this recipe if you are trying to sneak in. If you are okay to consume flax seeds, then you can go ahead and try with more flax seeds proportions as in the recipe.

If you are trying, please half the recipe and try in small quantity.
