Considering the above facts, this study was under taken with special interest in the development of omega 3 fatty acid enriched designer food. The aim of the study to optimize roasted linseed powder (RLSP) incorporated dalia porridge food using Response Surface Methodology. In order to optimize the dalia porridge, the optimum condition of broken wheat 40g, RLSP 10g, moong dal 16.55g and broken rice 15g respectively. Corresponding to these values of process variables, the values of CHO 85.63g, protein 28.57g, omega 3 fatty acid 33.12mg and overall acceptability 8. The overall desirability was 63 % respectively.
