    Notes

    How to make the best Quality Flaxseed Molagapodi:
    1. Use the freshest ingredients - flaxseed has a very low shelf life, even if refrigerated. So buy the seeds just before making the podi and be sure to make only small batches of the podi for immediate use
    2. Follow the video fully to understand roasting time and quantity
    3. Rock salt is used to increase the shelf life - be sure to dry roast it too.
    4. If you want it more / less spicy, adjust the spicy chillies accoidingly. You can use Pandi or Guntur chillies based on their 'heat'   
    5. Sun-dry all spices and ingredients if possible for a few hours before making ANY spice mix. If it's not possible to sun-dry, atleast make sure they are 100% moisture free.
