Peanut-Almond-Flaxseed Powder

Items needed

Peanuts - 4 cups
Almonds-1 cup
Flax seed powder/Flax meal-1/4 cup
Salt as needed
Red chilli powder as needed
Cumin seeds-4 table spoons
Garlic cloves-10


Microwave water for 3 mins and soak almonds in that water for 3mins. Peel off the almonds.
In a pan, fry the peeled almonds until they turn into light red color, keep aside.
Similary fry peanuts,cumin seeds and flax seeds/powder individually.
After each of the above ingredients  gets cooled, altogether or individually, powder them using a blender/mixie.
If  interested can add few garlic cloves(peeled) to the ingredients while grinding.
Before final run in the blender, add salt and chilli powder and run the blender once to mix the contents well.
Peanut powder is ready..
If you are new to  using flax seeds/powder use it less than 1/4 cup as it may work more on your stomach due to its fibre content.
Flax seed powder is readily available which can be fried until a slight change in the color is observed, later can be mixed with peanut and almond powder.
This powder is very good for managing cholesterol levels.
