Sathu Maavu or health mix as the name indicates is full of healthy ingredients. Laddu prepared with sathu maavu is a great snack for kids. Many kids do not like kanji or porridge prepared with health mix but they will surely love this laddu. Mothers can pack these laddus for children studying in hostel, as mostly hostel food will not be very nutritious. I have made these laddus with homemade health mix prepared with 100% organic ingredients without white sugar. Today we will learn how to make wholesome, nutritious, health mix laddus following this easy recipe.
Dry roast cashew nuts and almonds and chop it into small pieces. As it is time consuming to chop the nuts, you can pulse it just for a second in the mixie.
Powder jaggery finely. You will get good quality organic jaggery without any impurities in health stores or organic stores.
Prepare Sathu Maavu or health mix powder as given in the link below or you can use store bought health mix powder.

Healthy and tasty Health mix laddus are ready in just 15 minutes.
This can be had as a snack by adults, pregnant women and kids. It can be given to kids as after school snacks or can be packed in their snack box.
