Sattu ka Paratha

Powdered roasted chana dal (sattu) is flour consisting of mixture of ground pulses and cereals. Also fondly known as “Desi Horlicks”, it is extensively used in Bihari cuisine and Benarasi cuisine. It is a good source of energy, is rich in fibre and has a high nutritional value. It can be included in our diet in the form of breakfast dishes like Sattu ka Paratha. It is a bit different from the rest of the stuffed parathas, as the stuffing in this case consists of sattu instead of vegetables. A dash of “Mirch Ka Achar” (chilli pickle) paired with spices add their own special touch to the sattu stuffing. In Sattu Paratha traditionally wheat flour (atta) is used. The stuffing should be carefully placed and spread on the paratha. The edges of the paratha should be sealed properly to prevent falling of the stuffing. This paratha is then cooked on a hot pan and flipped, till both the sides have a perfect golden-brown colour. Sattu ka Paratha can be served hot with baingan ka bharta and tamater ki chutney. Sattu ka Paratha is a wholesome source of breakfast, and will keep you full till the lunch break, guaranteed!
