Healthy Spinach and Flax seed Dosa

Now a days I started using some healthy ingredients in usual cooking. When our doctor recommended us to take the flax seed oil, at first I dont have any clue about it. But after knowing the benefits about these seeds, I got the powder and started taking it in my daily basics in some way or other. And one of such thing is this dosa. It really yummy as a usual dosa but with some healthy stuffs.

Benefits of Flax Seed:

Its high content of alpha linolenic acids has made the ancient flax seed become our modern miracle food. Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) is a type of plant-derived omega 3 fatty acid, similar to those found in fish such as salmon. Benefits of flax seed as shown in many studies include lowering total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the Bad cholesterol) levels. Other benefits show that flax seed may also help lower blood triglyceride and blood pressure. It may also keep platelets from becoming sticky therefore reducing the risk of a heart attack.
