Stuffed paratha prepared with chana sattu flavored with pickle masala, onions, fresh coriander leaves, green chili, and carom seeds, etc. is sattu paratha. Sattu is a very popular bihar food. And due to the sattu benefits, it is becoming popular. Sattu paratha is an easy and simple way of adding sattu in the diet.

Sattu is basically the ground form of roasted cereals or pulses. I like to make and stock up sattu and use it in various recipes. Litti chokha is the most common sattu recipe as well as the most popular bihar food. Litti chokha recipe is a bit time taking and litti calls for its accompaniments, therefore, paratha prepared with chana sattu powder is my on the go dinner dish using sattu. Let’s have a look at its ingredients:
Sattu: Sattu can be prepared with split Bengal gram (chana), whole wheat (gehun) or barley (jo) or a combination of any of these. The sattu paratha has been prepared using chana sattu.
Other ingredients for stuffing: The ingredients used to flavor litti stuffing are used to make the stuffing for sattu paratha. These include pickle masala, mustard oil, onion, chilies, fresh coriander etc. I have used the mango pickle masala. You can also use the chili pickle masala. Further lemon juice, red chili powder can also be added to the sattu stuffing. Since my pickle masala was hot and tangy enough I have skipped these. Garlic paste has also been used to flavor the sattu parathas.
Dough for paratha: The dough for paratha should be softer than the dough for chapati otherwise it doesn’t expand properly. Further, it should be well-rested otherwise it tears on being rolled.
Stuffed sattu paratha can be served with yogurt for a weekday breakfast.
