How to make Sathu Mavu at home???
These are all the ingredients which i used to make sathu mavu.You can add or skip any ingredients as per your wish and also you can increase or decrease the quantity as per your wish.If you make any changes in the ingredients, then there might be a slight change in the taste.Before proceeding the process make sure that all the ingredients are cleaned well to make powder.Sometimes the ragi we get in store might contain dusts and stones so remove and clean them and make it ready.
Dry roast all the ingredients separately,one by one.Make sure that they do not burn and then powder it in mixie.You can powder it one by one or together.It depends according to the quantity you make.The measurement which i mentioned here yields 2-3 cups of flour.But if you are making more than that then better power it in mill than in mixie.
Once you powdered the flour sieve it.If you find any solid peace collect it and powder it again in mixie.Sieve it again.
Once done,Keep it in a air tight container.No need to store it in fridge you can store it in room temperature also.
How to Consume it???
If you want to give this for kids,
Take 2 tsp of this powder,mix in 1/4 cup cold water and 1/2 cup milk.Dissolve It without any lumps.Keep this in stove and stir continually till you get porridge like consistency.Remove it from stove,add a tsp of sugar and cool down for some time.Feed your baby in spoon.
If you want to give this to adults,
Take 2 tsp of Health mix and a cup of butter milk,mix it nicely.Add salt and then consume it.
As i said before you can change the ingredients like parboiled rice into brown rice and you can add jowar,etc.
My mom used to add sugar while powder it.If you are going to make sweet version then add in 4 tbsp sugar while powder it.
If your kids doesn’t want to have it in kanji form then make ladoo and give them as snack.Will try to post more recipes using sathu mavu in future.
Have a Nice Day!!!
