Sattu stuffed parantha/ flat bread

Sattu or Saweej or Sat anaaj – means flour made out of one or a mix of seven different cereals. The chief cereal here is Bengal gram or Chana, which is roasted in sand, then cooled and ground into powder. Various other cereals are added to make Sattu, as per local cultivation, such as millets.

Sattu is highly nutritious and fibrous and good in both the seasons, whether summer or winter.

It is popularly consumed in the state of Bihar and other adjoining states.

Sattu has been prepared since ancient times in India and Pakistan.

Presenting here today is Sattu stuffed paranthas/ flat bread. Perfect meal to serve during these chilly days, along with some pickle of one’s choice. 🙂


Here’s what I did…………


For 6 paranthas / flat bread :

2 1/2 tbsp – sattu

1 tbsp – finely chopped onion

1 tsp – chopped coriander /cilantro

1/2 tsp – finely chopped green chili

pinch of carom seeds + a pinch

salt to taste

1 tbsp – pickle oil (oil from any pickle of choice)

2 cups – wheat flour

clarified butter / ghee to fry

water – as per need


Sprinkle a pinch of carom seeds and half a tsp salt in the wheat flour. Knead the flour with water. Cover and keep aside.

In a bowl, mix the sattu and all other ingredients together. Adjust salt.
