Sattu flour is roasted chickpea flour and is different from besan. This flour is mostly made by brown skinned chickpea, roasted and powdered. It is really good for health. We can make paratha stuffing with sattu flour and it is very delicious too.
I loved sattu ka sharbat very much and I was sure this sattu paratha also will be really good with the similar flavour and taste. I saw this simple recipe in Instagram and tried. It turned out really good and Aj too loved it and had. Sattu flour is different from the sathu maavu (multi grain mix).
How to make sattu paratha step by step pictures:
- First prepare dough. Mix wheat flour, ghee and salt. Add lukewarm water to make a soft but non sticky dough. Keep aside for 10 mins. After 10 mins, knead the dough again to make it smooth and divide into 5 equal sized balls.
- When the dough is resting, you can prepare stuffing, In a mixing bowl, take sattu flour, chopped onion, coriander leaves, green chilli, ginger, garlic, ajwain, lemon juice and pickle/ amchoor powder. Add lemon juice and sprinkle one or two tsp of water to make the stuffing soft.
- If you want, you can make the stuffing also as balls (easy way). Take one dough ball and spread to a thick disc and place the stuffing in half spread paratha.
- Gather the sides to cover and seal the stuffing. Pinch off excess if any. Dust well and roll into thick paratha gently.
- Heat tawa, once hot, cook the paratha both sides with oil or ghee drizzled. Cook in medium heat until golden spots appear.
Serve with pickle and plain raita.
