Nineth Day of Navarathri -Sathu Maavu Urundai(Health mix Ladoo)
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 mix (Sathu maavu) 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. These ladoos are very yummy to taste and its healthy too.Here we move onto the recipe
