MASHED BRINJALS WITH FLAXSEED
Hello dear friends. Welcome to my cosy corner again. As we all know flaxseed is considered one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet. It helps to reduce diabetes, cholesterol, stroke, breast cancer, heart disease and contains rich amounts of omega-3 fatty acids, lignans, and fibres. Today I am sharing with you all a very uncommon, unique and traditional recipe of my hometown, Mashed Brinjals With Flaxseed. It is simple, healthy, totally oil free and I hope you will like it and make it sometimes in your kitchens. So the recipe is as follows:—-
- Brinjal – 2
- Homemade Flaxseed Powder – 150 gms(refer to my blog on pumpkin and flaxseed curry)
- Green Chillies – 2
- Lemon Juice – 3 Tsp
- Salt – According to taste
- Mustard Oil – 2 Tsp
- Coriander Leaves – Optional
Wash and slit the brinjals in half without cutting them. Pressure cook the brinjals for five minutes and two whistles.
Now drain the brinjals very properly ensuring there is no water left in them and mash them with a masher. Chop the green chilies and coriander leaves.
Take a bowl. Add the mashed brinjals. Next add in the salt, green chilies, lemon juice, mustard oil and coriander leaves and give all a good mix.
Our Brinjal With Flax Seed Bharta is done. Serve it with steamed boiled rice, dal tadka, and some fried or shallow-fried veggies.
Friends do try the recipe at home. Share your comments and feedback. Have a great week everyone. Till then healthy cooking, happy living!!!
