Flax seeds chutney -flax seeds spice powder

From the time we came to Bangalore, I was getting to see Flax seeds in many malls. Unsure of how to use it, the seeds were facinating me each time with it's silky texture. As the many health benefits of flax seeds were catching my attention.  
Finally I tried my hand with this chutney made of flax seeds. Belive me it turns so good that you will like to make it a frequent item on your plate. 

1 cup Flax seeds 
1/4 cup Groundnuts
3 tbsp Urad dal
3 tbsp Coriander seeds
2 tbsp Cumin seeds
1/4 cup Curry leaves
5-6 cloves of garlic
3 tbsp red chili powder( Optionally you can take whole red chilies and roast it with other ingredients)
2 tbsp oil
salt to taste

1. In a pan add little oil, add flax seeds and roast well, transfer in plate and keep aside
2. In same pan, roast Groundnuts and tansfer in same plate as flax seeds and keep aside
3. Now in same pan keep roasting, urad dal, coriander seeds, cumin seeds one by one and transfer in plate
4. Add little oil again and roast curry leaves till they turn crispy
5. Transfer curry leaves to the same plate as other ingredients, add chili powder,  garlic and salt
6. Let the all ingredients,  cool to room temperature and then grind to fine powder using a mixer grinder
Yummy chutney is ready....(I forgot to capture grounded chutney picture :( So that will add next time)

Kitchen Gyan: When serving pure some Ghee on the chutney powder, serve with rice or phulka. Also goes well as dosa pudi
