Sathu Maavu Urundai | Health Mix Laddu

         Sathu Maavu - Indian health mix powder made using a mix of corn,Millet's,nuts and thickening agents like green gram,peanuts etc.Sathu maavu is easily available at any shops,But making own sathu maavu is always hygienic and more convenient to our likings.

       My mom makes sathu maavu for me and pack it.Me and my daughter love sathu maavu in milk ,my husband never bothered about it all the time.When the mix is over, i never tried making it.This time i am determined to do sathu maavu,will share the recipe soon when i am making it.
      When i made this sathu maavu urundai fearing that year old maavu will go bad.I am little surprised to see my husband ate quite a few. Nuts and ghee would sure get kids to eat ,even if they don't like sathu maavu drink.Try to impress kids and adults by making this for their snack.Its easy to pack for a day outing without any mess.

  • If you are getting the health mix out ,check for any items you or your child is allergic to.
  • Its better to grind the health mix in machines ,which grind flour.(maavu mill)
  • If you prepare health mix in mixer, try to sieve the mix to bring the consistency.
  • Health mix is not suitable for kids under 1 years of age.It is difficult for the kids to digest Millet's included in health mix.So ask doctor or grandma about it.
  • If you are worried about sugar,add jaggery by melting and removing its impurities.
  • Ghee helps to bind the ingredients together and gives a nice aroma to urundai.So don't skip it.
  • If you are not able to make balls with the mentioned ghee,try to heat some more ghee and make balls when the health mix is warm.
  • If you don't have powdered sugar.You can do so in Indian mixer (mixer gets heated so stop often and check it is powdered).You can add cardamom to the sugar mix as well.
