Flaxseeds are called linseeds in India. I found them once in Goa. I remember there being a small natural foods market in Connaught Place somewhere, but I can't remember the name of the store or it's location. Someone else here on the forum might know. You may find flaxseeds there.

Hello David and thanks for the reply.

I did more google searches last night and I think perhaps there is an Organic Foods store in New Friends Colony that might stock them or a place called FabIndia in Gurgaon. Hope I find them when I head out tonight.

I went to Ambiance Mall in Gurgaon last night and got flaxseed soft gel capsules from Big Bazaar. Not exactly what I was looking for as I preferred to get them in seed form but they'll do for now.

Surajmukhi is sunflower seed, not flax.

Flax seeds are very easily available- my wife buys them all the time in Hyderabad from a supermarket or neighbourhood store- and they are known as 'flax' seeds here.

In Hindi/Delhi, flax could be अलसी - 'ulsee' seeds.

hi,
i'd like to 2nd the question:
so flax seeds are part of the local cuisine? i mean you can get them in the market place and don't need to look for them in foreign health shops, right?
thanx

Ask for "Isabgol" - Every chemist carries flax seeds packaged in 200gm packets under this brand name

I checked and you may be right. Not sure how I got the impression that flax seeds = Isabgol. Thanks for the correction. Happy you like my blog

Yes, flaxseed is now somewhat easily available. It's indeed called Alsi in Hindi. I've been using it in small quantities for some years. Organic stores keep it in small packets of 200 gms or thereabouts and have arbitrary rates for it. If you're able to find the old-style grocery stores that sell wares by weighing in real time, you'd find it there. The only grocery store in the Lajpat Nagar central market would have it for sure. I buy it @ Rs100/kg in Gurgaon but this quality requires sifting out of other unnecessary (mostly mustard) seeds. Organic stores would charge more but give you cleaned seeds.
