Sukeko Mula- Kerau ko Achar using Flax Seed Puree as dressing (Dried Daikon-Peas Salad) Recipe!!
I love Bhang (Hemp Seed) used in Achar (salad). It has been almost a decade since I haven't made achar using Bhang. I wanted to bring some with me here to the States but it looks like customs does not allow. I used to always search for alternatives! Sesame puree is commonly used in different achars but Bhang has very distinct taste. Finally, this Sunday I decided to make achar using Flax Seed Puree as a dressing. I was nervous at first as I just decided to use it randomly and was hoping that it might be a substitute for Bhang. Surprisingly, it was definitely very close :) Not 100% same but the slippery/thicker consistency was exactly same. The achar came out be delicious and this was already my third time making this dish. If you are someone who misses Bhang but do not have access then Flax Seed is the best alternative :) Click here for another version of Mula kerau ko Achar using Sesame Seeds Puree.
