Sattu k Parothe (Lentil stuffed flat bread)

Am back from my home and already feeling nostalgic . Anyways i enjoyed a lot during my stay. It was killing summer with some cats and dogs pouring rain in between. Sattu is the famous lentil powder of bihar and jharkhand, India. It is made from roasted chana dal. It is perfect for summer as it keeps the stomach cool and filled.

Lets take a look at the recipe
Serves- 10 Parathas
Preparation time- 10 minutes
Cooking time- 2 minutes for each paratha(filling, flattening and cooking)
Level of difficulty- medium


  • Chapati dough
  • Sattu/Lentil powder(chana dal roasted and then powdered)- 1 cup
  • Onion- 1, chopped thinly
  • Green chillies- 1, chopped
  • Ajwain or carom seeds
  • Ginger minced- 1 Tbsp
  • Garlic minced- 1 Tbsp
  • salt as per taste
  • Ghee or butter for cooking
  • Water

Sattu masala preparation(filling preparation)
  • To make a perfect sattu filling, add ajwain seeds, salt, onion, green chillies ginger and garlic to it, add little water and come up  with moist sticky sattu powder ,slightly like a dough.
Filling and flattening
  • Now take handful of chapati dough and make balls out of it. Fill in the sattu masala and roll it flat.
  • Heat a tawa or a pan in medium high heat.
  • Place the chapati over the tawa, wait until some brown spots hit below, flip on to other side and wait until the brown spots hit on the other side too. Now flip again and add a tsp of butter or ghee. Grease both side well and take the paratha out off the pan.
Your sattu paratha is ready to be served. Serve it hot with any curry, sauce or pickle. It always tastes great.

Enjoy and happy cooking.
