Chia seed is now a known super-food to all & mostly we use it in our daily breakfast cereals, smoothies, puddings or as sprinkles over salads . This time chia seeds are send to me by Go India Organic in association with Plattershare. I thought organic is some what desi concept & we Indians at some point of time used to produce organic food mainly. So I wanted to make something very Indian with this organic chia seed & i twisted my regular yogurt chutney by adding chia ,beetroot & lemon. Here is the recipe..
- Chia Seeds : 2 tbsp
- Beetroot : 1 medium size

- Yogurt : 4 tbsp
- Roasted Cumin Powder : 1 tsp
- Black Salt : 1 tsp
