It is 'cheruchana vithu' in Malayalam.Flaxseeds is known as San, Alsi in Hindi, Gujarati, and Punjabi, Ali vidai in Tamil. Flaxseed is also known as Linseed, Atasi, and Jawas in Marathi, Tishi in Bengali, Pesi in Oriya, Agasi in Kannada, Avise ginzalu in Telugu.

Flax seeds (cheruchana vithu)come in two basic varieties, brown and yellow or golden, with most types having similar nutritional values and equal amounts of short-chain omega-3 fatty acids. The exception is a type of yellow flax called Linola or solin, which has a completely different oil profile and is very low in omega-3. Although brown flax can be consumed as readily as yellow, and has been for thousands of years, it is better known as an ingredient in paints, fibre and cattle feed. Flax seeds produce a vegetable oil known as flaxseed or linseed oil; it is one of the oldest commercial oils and solvent-processed flax seed oil has been used for centuries as a drying oil in painting and varnishing.

One tablespoon of ground flax seeds and three tablespoons of water may serve as a replacement for one egg in baking by binding the other ingredients together. Ground flax seeds can also be mixed in with oatmeal, yogurt, wafer (similar to Metamucil), or any other food item where a nutty flavour is appropriate. Flax seed sprouts are edible, with a slightly spicy flavour. Excessive consumption of flax seeds can cause diarrhea.

Though flax seeds are chemically stable while whole, ground whole seeds or oils become rancid much more quickly upon exposure to oxygen, and require special storage (generally refrigeration or in sealed packaging) to remain nutritious for even a short period of time.

Possible medical benefits :

Main article: Linseed oil#Nutritional supplement Flax seeds contain high levels of lignans and Omega-3 fatty acids. Lignans may benefit the heart, possess anti-cancer properties and studies performed on mice found reduced growth in specific types of tumours. Initial studies suggest that flaxseed taken in the diet may benefit individuals with certain types of breast and prostate cancers.Flax may also lessen the severity of diabetes by stabilizing blood-sugar levels.There is some support for the use of flax seed as a laxative due to its dietary fiber content though excessive consumption without liquid can result in intestinal blockage. Consuming large amounts of flax seed can impair the effectiveness of certain oral medications, due to its fiber content.

Here is one recipe made up of cheruchana vithu.

FLAXSEED SCONES

Ingredients :

1¾ cup whole wheat pastry flour ¼ cup flax seed ½ cup sugar 2 teaspoon baking powder ½ teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon salt ½ teaspoon orange essence 1 teaspoon orange rind ½ cup dried cranberries (chopped) 8-10 almonds (chopped) ½ teaspoon orange essence ¾ cup buttermilk ¼ cup oil

Preparation :

Heat the oven to 400°F.

Grind the flax seeds to a coarse texture in a blender or coffee grinder.

In a bowl mix all the dry ingredients well and keep aside.

Mix buttermilk, oil, and orange essence together.

On a cookie sheet place a wax paper and grease well.

Mix the dry ingredients with the buttermilk mix.

Knead gently with floured hands. Form the dough into a 7-inch circle across, ½ inch high. Place this on the greased cookie sheet. With a sharp knife make 8 wedges, leaving them in place.

Sprinkle sugar over these wedges.

Bake at 400° for 18-20 minutes till the crust develops a golden hue and the center is semi-firm.

Serve hot with a pat of butter.

Hints: For variety, replace orange essence with ½ teaspoon of elaichi powder. Whole wheat pastry flour is available in health stores.

Balakrishnan,

Flaxseed is known as Cheruchana vithu in Malayalam.

Flaxseed is known as Linseed, Atasi, and Jawas in Marathi, Tishi in Bengali, Pesi in Oriya, Agasi in Kannada and Avise ginzalu in Telugu. Flaxseeds is also known as Ali vidai in Tamil, San, Alsi in Hindi, Gujarati, and Punjabi

Flax Seeds :

Flax seeds are flat, oval, glossy, and are pointed at one end. The color of the flaxseed ranges from light to dark reddish brown. Whole flaxseed comes with Mother Nature’s own finest packaging—its natural hard hull keeps it fresh.

Flaxseed has long been valued for its health benefits. One of the unique characteristics of flax is the oil in the seed. Flaxseed is over 40 percent oil. Like other vegetable oils, flax oil is a mixture of fatty acids, but it is the highest single source of a fatty acid called alpha-linolenic acid or ALA.

ALA is a member of the omega-3 fatty acid family. They are essential fatty acids, which the body cannot make, but absolutely needs for normal growth and development. These fats must be supplied by diet. Hundreds of studies have shown that diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids decrease risk of heart attacks, strokes, and abnormal heart rhythms.

Whole flax seeds are sold inexpensively at natural-food stores and some Indian grocery stores. It is best to buy them whole and grind them as needed in a coffee grinder.

It is imperative to grind these tiny, hard-shelled seeds, or they will pass through the body undigested.

Ground flax meal is also available in some health stores but it should be refrigerated in an airtight, opaque container, where it will keep for up to 30 days. You’ll know that flax meal has spoiled if it smells like oil paint.

These little brown seeds also make a great egg substitute. When flax seeds are blended with water, they develop a texture like egg whites. This slightly gummy substance can be used in place of eggs or egg whites in baked goods or as an excellent binder in meatless-loaves made from nuts, grains, and vegetables.

To replace one egg, grind about 1 tablespoons of flax seeds to a fine powder in a blender, spice mill, or food processor. Add 3 tablespoons of water and blend until slightly thickened, about a minute. This egg substitute is not suitable for recipes like soufflés or sponge cakes.

Flaxseed is high in fiber, so it’s important to increase water intake along with increased in flax intake.

Flaxseed Chutney :

1cup flax seeds 10-12 curry leaves 6-8 dried red chillies Salt to taste

In a toaster oven place the seeds, curry leaves, and red chilies at 250 degrees for 10-12 minutes. You will get the nutty roasted aroma. Cool for 15 minutes and grind the seeds to the consistency of cornmeal in a coffee grinder. Store in airtight container in the refrigerator for one month.

Tips to include flax seed in home cooking:

Sprinkle ground flax seed on your cereal and salads

Substitute flax seed mixture for eggs in home baking such as muffin and pancake (1 tbsp milled flaxseed, plus 3 tbsp water = 1 egg). Final products will have less volume and taste grumpier

Include flax seed oil in other recipe when nutty flavor is preferred

Substitute flax seed oil for other oils

Avoid eating flax seeds whole. Its best to lightly roast the seeds, either in a kadhai till they start crackling (similar to til or sesame seeds).

Raw Flax seeds, contain a substance called cyanate, which can be harmful to the body in larger quantities. Ideally , one should grind the roasted flax seeds, This is easily done in a grinder. The recommended amount per day, is about 1-2 tablespoons.

Flax Seed chutney :

Grind together 250 gms roasted flax seeds, a big palmful of dried red chillies, and 1-2 whole garlic. Add salt to taste. Enjoy on toast, curd rice, boiled veggies, dal-rice etc

Make a delcious mixture of juice of a few lemons, salt, red chilly powder, fenugreek powder(methi), haldi (turmeric), and add in ground flax seeds chutney, or just plain ground seeds. This makes a delicious sandwhich spread.
