How to Make Plain Sattu Paratha

  • Knead the flour with sufficient water to make a soft dough.
  • Mix and mash all the stuffing ingredients (except sattu) with your palm. This mixture will release some water.
  • Then add sattu in this mixture and mix properly.
  • Divide the mixture as well as dough (prepared earlier) into 8 small balls.
  • Roll out the portion of the dough into a small chapatti, place a portion of the mixture in the centre of the chapatti.
  • Gather the edges to make a round flat peda.
  • Lightly dust the surface with flour and roll out the peda into six - inch parathas.
  • On a hot griddle roast both sides of the paratha till they turn a shade of golden.
  • Grease with ghee, oil or butter.
  • This can be served with green chutney, pickle or curd.
