Sathu Maavu/Multigrain Health Mix/Home made cerelac is one regular food in my daily routine. I begin my mornings with this drink and I prefer making roti or dosa twice a week with this so that it gets included in my little one’s diet too. I somehow have not experimented giving him this as a porridge to him because it is always recommended to stop offering porridges as regular meals above 8 months for babies. This dosa recipe was an instant try and it really turned out good in taste.

You can realise the struggle I had in making perfect dosa with the images. Yeah.. Some extra care and patience is required to make this dosa without tearing into pieces.You shall definitely master the skill on your second trial itself for sure. This recipe will be an excellent choice in terms of nutrition and less effort. There is no need to grind or ferment batter to make this dosa.I kindly request you to please read the P.S section for more details.

Ensure that curd is slightly sour.This will help in enhancing the taste and also in adding effects of fermentation.

You can also skip adding curd and add just water to mix it.But it would require a resting time of 30 -40 minutes.

Add water carefully. Don’t make too runny.

Spread the batter once the dosa pan is hot.

Cook in medium flame.

You can add wheat flour or roasted & powdered sooji/rava instead of rice flour.

Adding green chilly is purely optional.

Avoid salt and chilly for babies less than one year.

This can be offered to babies after having ruled out allergies for all ingredients in the recipe of home made cerelac/multigrain mix/sathumaavu.

Please consult your paediatrician before offering any new food to babies.

I would suggest offering homemade cerelac/sathu maavu in the form of dosa or roti instead of porridges .
