Sattu Ka Paratha is another variety of spiced Paratha that is packed with protein and pairs great with all curries, dal, veggies and can also be served in Breakfast with curd and pickle.

It is essentially made with ‘Sattu’ which is a prominent flour from UP, Bihar, Jharkhand and is made with roasted chana dal. These Stuffed Sattu Paratha are spiced with cumin seeds, hing (Asafoetida), some freshly chopped coriander and the thoughtful addition of Black Salt or Kala Namak makes them unique and lip smacking. Smear with ghee or butter and these parathas are going to make your meal more interesting.

Not only Paratha, you can also use ‘Sattu’ to make wonderful energy drink for summers. Do check our recipe for Sattu Ka Namkeen Sharbat that not only quinches thirst, but also relieves from sun stroke and aids in good digestion.

Called The Poor Man’s Protein, ‘Sattu’ is the latest food joing the category of Indian Regional Flours and gaining popularity due to it’s unique taste and easy use. It is high in nutrition, though earlier you could find this wonderful flour in the grocery shops of UP & Bihar only. So what was actually restricted just to few North Indian cities, is now easily avilable in super markets and online shopping.

How to make Sattu Ka Paratha

To begin with making Sattu Ke Paratha, let us make the dough first.

  1. Take wheat flour in a mixing bowl and add little bit of salt. Knead to a soft dough with water and keep this to rest.
  2. Now while our dough is resting, we can proceed to make the ‘Sattu Filling’. For this take all ingredients given in later category and mix to combine well. Sprinkle some warm water and mix again. This would make the filling easy to work with.
  3. Now divide the dough in 7-8 balls. Take one ball, dust in flour and roll into a medium circle. Put a tablespoon of filling in the center and bring the edges together the same way as you do to make aloo parathas.
  4. Again dust this ball in flour and roll out in a medium thick circle.
  5. Cook on a hot griddle or tawa while smearing with ghee or oil on both the sides. Do not miss to press with a spatula to ensure even cooking.
  6. Sattu Paratha is ready to serve. Repeat the process with the remaining amount of dough and filling.
