I had earlier intended to make sweet potatao paratha after reading subbus blog. But i came upon an idea of trying something new . The ragi flour, sathu maavu were in the fridge for many days . i thought Sathu maavu will be ideal as we can get all nutrients in one go. For those who do not know what is Sathu Maavu – a small intro.
Ragi, wheat , horse gram, Almond, Green gram, oats, wheat,corn , Par boiled rice and a variety of pulses and legumes should be dry roasted and grinded in the machine . A small teaspoon of this flour is mixed with milk or water and then added to 1 cup of boiling milk and stirred well to geta a porridge like consistency . We can add sugar and drink. This is an energy booster and one of our neighbour in my Hometown introduced this to us . Those of us who are under weight can drink this. Pregnant women and children can benefit the most . The one i used is bought from the store which is also equally good . Today i used it to make paratha . Till now my family did not find i used Sathu maavu. Now the recipe.
Mix well the flour and powder . Add salt and again mix well.
Then add mashed sweet potato and little water and knead well. Its seeme to be hard but later the dough becomes soft . Finally add little oil and knead well . It is better to mash the sweet potatoes when they are hot .
After 1 hour
Roll it into chapattis . If it sticks or doesn’t stretch , knead the ball again and roll it . If needed put a plastic cover and on it make the paratha. So that it will be easy to put on the tava.
Usually i roll the paratha on one side and cook it one by one simultaneously . Heat the Tava and put the paratha on it . Add little Ghee or oil and cook well, Slow fire is ideal . Although the size and shape is not like regular ones the taste is different and we get soft parathas . And even two parathas are filling . If you prefer a different taste then go ahead with this .i made Navarathan Kurma for this . Anything spicy will go well with Sathu Maavu Paratha.
