Hey there,

This post explaining simple snack recipe with amrutham podi / Nutri mix powder.Kinna

Kinnathappam is a common sweet cake widely used in Kerala. The white kinnathappam is widely made in Middle Kerala and black version is baked in North Kerala. Today I am sharing the black version using jaggery.

The Amrutham Podi/ Nutrimix Powder is a health supplement provided by Kudumbasree that is aimed to satisfy the nutritional requirements of the children of Kerala(India) between the ages of six months and three years. It operates under the Take Home Ration Strategy which is a feeding programme through Anganwadis, and the Nutrimix is distributed in the form of Take-Home-Ration.

There are five major ingredients in the Amrutham Nutrimix: Wheat, Groundnut, Soybean, Gram Dal and sugar/jaggery.
