Sathu Maavu powder or home made cerelac is one of the best nutritious Weight Gaining Food that you can offer your baby.
There are many commercial available sathu maavu preparations in the market, they also work out good, but making the health mix at home helps to customize the ingredients according to your baby’s need.
I know it is very difficult to prepare such cumbersome powders for moms who are in nuclear families. Believe me !! I completed the whole process from roasting to grinding in 1 hour. Keep all the ingredients ready, Roast all the ingredients in 2 kadai in two burners, please take care they should not be burnt. Remove them to plate immediately after roasting to let it cool, by the time you dry roast the last ingrdient, others will be in room temperature and you can grind them in a jify.
If you are grinding it in a power mill, give 1 kg of wheat or rice to grind before grinding this health mix, as the power mill grinds an array of masalas, chillies etc which may contaminate the baby health powder.

Ragi – I didn’t add ragi because I use sprouted Ragi separately to make Ragi Powder & Ragi porridge.
Ajwain and Cumin instead of Elachi
You can also employ the same method for larger quantities. The ingredients can also be sprouted, dried, roasted and powdered. The sprouted version is very healthy and nutritious but is a time-consuming process. You need at least 2 days to complete the process.
While making this sathu maavu powder, use clean dry utensils or the powder will get spoiled soon.
