  • 2 cups - whole Wheat flour (atta)
  • 1/2 cup approx - refined oil/ghee/butter
  • For stuffing:
  • 1 cup - sattu (roasted gram flour)
  • 1 medium - onion, chopped
  • 2 Cloves - garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 inch - ginger, chopped
  • 2 - 3 - green chillies, chopped
  • 2 - 3 tbsp - Lemon juice

  • How to Make Plain Sattu Paratha:

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