Sathu Maavu Urundai / Healthy Rounds

This is a very healthy snack that can be prepared within a minute or two. When I was a kid, my grandmother used to make this for me using just the sprouted and roasted Ragi flour. But nowadays you get many health drink mix (Sathu maavu for Kanji) readily available in the stores. The Health mix is basically a powder made from sprouted and roasted multi grains and nuts flavoured with cardamom. I generally use the Manna brand of Health mix which is readily available in powder form, from the Indian stores. Alternately you may also make the Health mix at home for which I shall post the recipe soon. Since most of the kids generally don't like to drink the porridge made with the health mix, this snack is a very nice way to get them to eat it. And not only kids even the grown ups will enjoy them.

  • 4 tbsp  Health Mix
  • 2 tbsp Organic Cane Sugar/ Powdered Jaggery
  • 3-4 tsp Ghee
  1. Take the health mix in a bowl and add the organic sugar/ jaggery.
  2. Add the ghee little by little and mix to form a dough.
  3. Make small balls of the dough and serve the tasty and healthy snack.
Suggestions/ Notes
  1. You may use only sprouted and roasted Ragi flour if you don't have the Health mix readily available.
  2. The measures of the ingredients are only a suggestion. You may add more or less to adjust to your taste.
  3. Use only ghee for this recipe as butter will not taste as good.
