you are so lovely. thanks for providing all of us a highly nutritious recipe.
Thanks ptamil for the super recipe..I loved your idea of turning on the music in the morning on weekends to make the job interesting :thumbsup and shutting bedroom door to not disturb DH and DS.
In my house, its the opposite. DH wakes up at 4am daily:spin making me guilty of waking up late :bonk which is 7-7:30 am on weekends. I think it is fare
Anyways, I will find time to make this sathu mavu kanji recipe. One question though - Is there a savory/salty version of this? I do not prefer much sweets, and that too daily :crazy. But, if not, I think I will have to get used to eating the sweeter version, coz of its nutritional benefits.
the same mix can be made salty. You must first cook the powder as Tamil has said. Then instead of adding milk+sweetener you add buttermilk (thinned down yogurt), salt. This is an age-old recipe. only these days we add nuts, cardamom and all. those days they made only with grains and drank for breakfast
oh don't worry i'll give you company in waking up late. i tell my DH he has to wake up after me if he wants to see his wife up before him LOL! where we live i can't run mixie before 8 in the morning.. quietness rules for sathu maavu i'll have police knocking at my doors
i've been having sathu maavu (not regularly though) ever since i was in school. but always I buy. this time i was thinking of buying the ready-mixed whole grain packets that they sell. but the thought of grinding it scared me.
corn is normal corn right? (pop-corn type)
we don't get jowar and bajra here perhaps i should substitute with something else.. millet family...
Chotumeetu, hridaya: Thank you for the feedback
Sahmaara: As Traveller said, once the powder is cooked, add buttermilk (but turn the heat off quickly). Add salt as per taste.
Traveller: corn is normal corn (if you get bigger ones, better). I have not seen bigger ones
I learnt this recipe from my MIL when she visited me after delivery. Whenever we go to India, she makes and gives me around 2 kgs (she does all the dry frying ang gets it ground from the mill)
My DH has grown up drinking this, so no fuss in the mornings for having this. I am slowly giving to DS also to get him used to the habit of having Kanji
thanks and Traveller and ptamil for your inputs.
Also if you have it with buttermilk, avoid cardamom
Ptamil nice explanation. It induces me to drink continously. I used to get from shops.
Thank you for the feedback Lavanya.
