Sathu Maavu Urundai / Sathumaavu Laddu Recipe

By Hemapriya Natesan @MyLittleMoppet

Ever since we started our baby food store, one item that has been constantly in demand is our Sathumaavu Health Mix. On one occasion, we ran out of stock and there was a barrage of emails from Moms asking when it would be back!

Our Moms are smart; they know exactly why Sathumaavu is so good for their babies. Made with over 12 natural ingredients, here are just some of the reasons Sathumaavu is a superfood for babies:

  • It's an excellent weight gaining food for babies
  • It's full of carbohydrates, proteins, good fats, vitamins and minerals
  • Good source of dietary fiber & carbohydrate
  • Rich in protein, Vitamin B complex
  • Rich source of iron, calcium, molybdenum, magnesium and antioxidants

Making the sathumaavu mix on your own is obviously the safest option, but it requires a good deal of roasting and grinding, and can take a lot of time. But commercial brands can be full of preservatives and chemicals, and you don't want that for your baby! The best solution then is to get homemade, hygienically prepared and preservative-free sathumaavu delivered at your doorstep, and this is possible when you order from Little Moppet Foods.

But baby food isn't all that you can make with sathumaavu; you can use it in a variety of dishes. We've already featured Sathumaavu Cutlets, and today we're going to show you how you can make Sathumaavu Laddus - yummy, nutritious and easy laddus! I saw it on Sharmis Passions and have wanted to try them ever since; and trust me, they turned out delicious!

Method:

1. Heat a heavy bottomed pan and roast the sathumaavu powder till you get a nice, roasted aroma. Keep stirring and turn off the heat before it burns. Keep aside.

2. In another pan, add the grated jaggery and add just enough water to cover the jaggery.

3. Turn on the heat and when the jaggery mix starts thickening, turn it off. The consistency should be a little thinner than that of honey. Strain the mixture and keep aside to cool.

4. Mix the roasted sathumaavu and the strained jaggery in a large bowl. Add melted ghee and mix again. Keep aside till its cool enough for you to handle with bare hands.

5. Roll out small laddus from the mixture. Add more ghee at this point if you want. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
