Let’s talk about the ingredients for Sattu Paratha Recipe

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.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
