Milagu-Podi-with-Flax-seed

#MilaguPodiwithFlaxSeeds : #Blackpepper or simply #Pepper has been in use since centuries for its sharp pungent [ spicy ] taste and medicinal properties such as anti inflammatory & anti flatulance. It is a good source of minerals like potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and iron. It also contains Vitamin C, vitamine A and many B complex group of vitamines.
#Flaxseeds are also called by name #Linseeds. They are rich in essential fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid also known as omega 3, antioxidant and fiber. Researches found that #flaxseeds lower cholesterol level, controls diabetes and reduce hot flashes of postmenopausal women.
Traditionally #Cuminseeds decoction has been used to treat indigestion since centuries. It has also been used along with #blackpepper to treat common cold.
To get all the goodness of these wonderful spices I have prepared a powder for rice using them.
