Homemade Health Mix Powder / Sathu Maavu

    If your kids are tired of commercial health drinks, homemade health mix drink is a good alternative. Because the health mix has more than 20 grains, it is definitely healthier than readymade. Procedure is also not very complicated. Though it takes a lot of time, you can prepare a six month quantity in one shot.
     This is my ammachi’s (grandma) recipe and no wonder she is still healthy at 85.
