Now coming to Richie rich porridge as I named it, I think I really don't have to explain the nutritious benefits of this porridge. The ingredients speak by itself. :) This can in fact be 'The best' breakfast ever. Sathu maavu is pretty much common in India. It is a wholesome dish that can make you a Superman, Shakthiman or even spiderman. :)))) Last but not the least its absolutely yummy too.. :)


Cashew - 75 gms
Pearl Millet(Kambu) - 75 gms
Groundnut - 75 gms
Almond - 75 gms
Poppy seeds(Kasa Kasa) - 25 gms
Finger Millet(Ragi) - 75 gms
Par Boiled rice - 75 gms
Roasted Bengal gram(pottu kadalai) - 75 gms
Maize - 75 gms
Corn - 75 gms
Sago - 75 gms
Barley - 75 gms
Wheat - 75 gms
Soy - 75 gms
Cardamom - 5
Sugar - for taste


Roast each ingredient in a dry pan for few min. Once done grind all the ingredients finely into a powder. This would make 1 kg of powder. You can store this powder for 6 months and use it as and when you want.

Now to make 1 cup of porridge, take 2 tsp of this powder in a bowl and dilute it using 1 cup of water. Then let this contents boil till it gets thick.
Stir continuously so that it does not form lumps. Once done, add half cup of milk and 3 tsp of sugar to it and mix well.

Richie rich porridge is ready to eat. You can eat it either hot or cold. :) Enjoy the most healthiest dish ever. Happy eating :)

Note: Some times people add butter milk and salt instead of milk and sugar. Its great either ways. :)
