Nutritious Sattu ka Paratha, an Indian Bread Stuffed With Roasted Gram
Sattu ka paratha is a popular stuffed paratha in Bihar.
What is Sattu ka Paratha?
The best definition will be it’s a unleavened bread, pan fried and stuffed with roasted gram filling.
To prepare Sattu grains like barley, Bengal Gram is dry roasted. Traditionally in an iron pan, the grains and sand were roasted. Finally, after sieving the grains they are ground into fine flour.
Sattu flour can be a mixture of ground pulses and cereals from India. Sattu ka atta is also known as Chhatua.
Sattu is consumed predominantly in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh Uttrakhand, Punjab, New Delhi, in fact in Bihar Sattu is referred to as Desi Horlicks.
The Health Benefits
Apart from providing the body with energy, what makes sattu quite a unique ingredient is that its prepping process (dry roasting) keeps the nutritional values in place, and it can also be stored for longer. It's high on insoluble fiber, which makes it good for your intestines, and is low on glycemic index, making it safe, and in fact beneficial for diabetics. Plus it has good proportions of iron, manganese, and magnesium, and is low on sodium too.
So whether you're watching your weight or suffering from digestion problems, a glass ofsattu sharbat, or even rotis made from sattu will go a long way in keeping you healthy. And did you know that sattusharbat is also a brilliant way to detoxify the system of greasy food? It also contributes generously to the growth of muscle mass, and it's advised that children are given about two teaspoons of sattu every day.
Sattu ka Atta in regional cuisine is the starting point to create different dishes. Make porridge, sweet dishes with fruit slices, sugar, milk, or savoury dishes with green chilli, lemon juice, and salt.
