Flax seeds Laddu recipe with step by step instructions.Telugu Version.
I didn’t know or never heard about the flax seeds before 2 years.I used to give sesame laddu or peanut laddu to my daughter every evening.but once when I came to know about the health benefits of flax seeds I made them a part of our regular diet.I usually prepare Spice powder made of slightly roasted sesame seeds, flax seeds, red chilies in our breakfast for Dosa, Idlis and Upma.one day when I saw flax seeds laddu in our nearby sweet shop I bought them immediately.since then we made it as our evening snack.me, my husband and my daughter take 1 or 2 laddus a day.
my daughter told that she couldn’t bite the laddus as they are very hard to chew or bite.the laddus (that were bought) are bound with string consistency jaggery syrup so they were hard to chew.as my daughter still has some loose baby teeth she cannot take hard to chew foods.so I started to make them on my own.I didn’t add string consistency jaggery syrup but just melted it down and mixed with the powder.they are little difficult to bind but easily chewable. if you want to make this recipe for your kids, it may be hard for them too.so I suggest making them this way.
these laddus are full of nutrients.not only kids but also the elders can also have them.you can eat 1-2 laddus a day.like, one in the morning in brunch and one in the evening in supper.Sesame seeds are rich in the minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, copper etc.flax seeds are a good source of dietary fiber.the help lowering the cholesterol levels and lose weight.
they remain fresh up to 15 or 20 days at room temperature.but you need to store them in a clean, dry and airtight container.or you can store them refrigerator for a longer shelf life.they remain fresh up to 2 to 3 months when kept under refrigeration.Try and enjoy this healthy flax seeds laddu recipe.
