Hello, and welcome to my cooking corner again. Today I’ll be sharing a simple, healthy and alternate version of making kadhis, adding some roasted flaxseed powder, Flaxseed Kadhi. It is very easily prepared and has many nutrients, being rich in omega 3 fats. We make many dishes using flaxseed like curries, chutneys and it can be used to make soups and fritters too. I personally have made some dishes using it like Flaxseed Raita, Pumpkin with flaxseed, etc. It helps to lower cholesterol and really is a fab actively used ingredient of kitchens around the world. So let us start with the recipe–
- Roasted and ground flaxseed-1 tbsp
- Besan-1 tbsp
- Curd-250 gms
- Grated Ginger-1 tsp
- Turmeric Powder-1/2 tsp
- Red Chilly Powder-1/2 tsp
- Kadhi Masala-1 tsp
- Garam Masala-1 tsp

For the tempering:-
- Black Mustard-1/2 tsp
- Cumin-1/2 tsp
- Dry red chilies- 2
- Bay Leaf-1
- Asafoetida-A pinch
- Vegetable Oil- 2 tbsp
Roast and grind the flaxseed to a fine powder. Now to make the kadhi, take a bowl and add besan, curd, the spices; salt, turmeric powder, red chilly powder,kadhi masala,garam masala and mix well.
Next, take a pan and add all the tempering ingredients in it. Now, add the chopped onion and grated ginger and saute for two minutes. Add in the above-made mix of besan and curd and let it boil for four to five minutes.
Lastly, add in the flax seed powder, mix and let the kadhi simmer for five minutes. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
Our Flaxseed Kadhi is done. Serve it.
