Sathu Maavu | Homemade Health Mix(With grains/flours)

December 3, 2020 BasicsKids Bay  No comments

Sathu Maavu is a must at home. While we start the day with this Masala Chai, Chotu loves to start his day with this Sathu Mavu porridge. Usually we get the powder from Indian stores or get it from India. I did not dare to make it at home as we do not have the rice mills here which is easily accessible way back home. But gave it a try with a combination of whole grains(that can be ground in the mixie) and flours. The choice of grains and flours is upto you. I have added whatever is suitable for us. Tasted much more aromatic and flavourful than the store bought ones. Do check out the video..
