Sattu Paratha | Sattu Ka Paratha Recipe

Spread the love

A popular staple food of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, and Jharkhand- Sattu Paratha. I am not sure how many of you know what Sattu is, Well…if you want to know then you can ask any of your friend from Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, or Jharkhand and ask them to bring you either Sattu Paratha or Litti. 😀  Well…it’s nothing but a kind of flour made of roasted bengal gram/ chana dal. Yes, it is THAT simple. But what makes it different, is the way of making this flour. Traditionally, bengal gram was roasted using sand in an iron vessel and then ground to a flour consistency. That’s enough knowledge about preparing Sattu. 😀

After moving to the USA, one thing about which I was really concerned about was where to get Sattu from. 😀 But thanks to the Indian grocery stores here, they literally have each and everything which is sometimes hard to find even in India. 😛 I have always been a die-hard fan of Sattu Paratha or Litti cooked by my mom. Actually, there is no difference is Litti and Sattu Paratha except the size and thickness, but I love Sattu Paratha more than Litti. <3 I can have Sattu Paratha or Litti for Breakfast-Brunch-Lunch-Snack-Dinner-Breakfast-Brunch-Lunch-Snack-dinner and repeat. 😛 Yes, Seriously! As sattu has cooling effects, so it is also used to make Sattu Namkeen Sharbat in summers.
