A very simple summer beverage prepared with sattu, which helps to fight the sunstroke, is sattu drink. Sattu, unfortunately, is not a very well known ingredient in spite of the sattu benefits. However, gradually people are becoming aware of it and adding sattu in their diet. This recipe calls for chana sattu. It is a very refreshing drink and is consumed by the laborers etc especially during the summers so that they are protected and saved from the scorching heat of the sun.
Sattu, the ground form of roasted pulses or cereals! What is Sattu, what are the sattu benefits and what are sattu recipes or recipes using sattu? I am working on all these questions and soon I shall post a blog on this. The sattu ka ghol recipe doesn’t call for many ingredients. Sattu ka ghol is basically sattu ka sharbat. This is the sweet version. Salty or savory sattu drink is also prepared. Let’s see the ingredients required to make the sattu drink:
Sattu: I have used homemade chana sattu to make sattu drink. Although sattu Sharbat can be prepared using other variety of sattu too, I have yet to try those.
Powdered sugar: I have added powdered sugar for the sweetness. You can add jaggery.
Roasted cumin seeds powder: This gives a nice kick. Cumin seeds are anyways good for the summer recipes.
Black Salt: Salt balances all the flavors of the drink.
