Sattu Ke Paratthe

Sattu ke paratthe is roasted gram flour filled paratthe which is generally eaten in Eastern part of India. Roasted gram flour is easily found in India but outside of India, it is very difficult to find and generally not available in any shop, mall, departmental store. If you are staying outside India, then you have to bring it from India.

This paratha can be good options for travel or picnic too. This taste great either way as you eat just hot from tawa or eat after 4 - 5 hours of cooking. Baingan bharta and pickles make the great combination with it. It also tastes well with potato tomato gravy vegetables.

Try this recipe in coming weekend and enjoy your meal with family.

I divided this whole recipe into three parts
1. Preparation of filling
2. Preparation of dough
3. Making Paratha

Ingredients: for 10 parattha


  1. Roasted gram flour: 1cup or 200 gram approx.
  2. Onion: 1 small sized ( fine chopped )
  3. Garlic: 3 to 4 pods ( big sized )
  4. Green chillies: 2 ( fine chopped )
  5. Chat Masala: 2 tsp (If you have pickles spice, then use that)
  6. Lemon : 1
  7. Asafoetida : 1tsp
  8. Salt : 2 tsp or as per your taste


  1. Wheat flour: 2 cup or 400 gram
  2. Oil : 2 tsp
  3. Salt: 1 pinch
  4. Water : to knead


  1. Dough
  2. Filling
  3. Oil  or Ghee : for make Paratha

Method of Preparation:


  1. Take roasted gram flour in a dry bowl, add chopped onion, chopped green chilli, grated or paste of garlic, asafoetida, chat masala, salt and lemon juice. Mix well all ingredients together. Keep side.


  1. Take wheat flour in a bowl, put add and salt in this and mix well with flour until it becomes crumbs type mixture. Add water and knead it soft dough. Now cover it from wet kitchen towel for 20 mintues to set the dough.


  1. For paratha, divide dough into 10 equal ball size.

2.   Take one ball size dough, put some extra dry wheat flour over it and make it flat using palm then make it cup type moving fingers in round directions.

3.     Put 2 to 3 spoons filling in the dough cup and then cover it using fingers joining all edges of dough. Make it flat using fingers.

4.   Now again dust some dry wheat flour over it and roll it using rolling pin slowly slowly with light hand pressure. Roll it in round shape.

5.    Put griddle ( tawa ) on stove on high flame. When griddle is hot then put rolled stuffed dough over it.

6.   When one side starts turning brown then turn the other side on gridle.
7.    When both sides are cooked then put oil or Ghee whatever you want on both sides turning one by one and cook.

8.    Now paratha is ready, take it out in plate. Repeat same process with other dough pieces.
Serve it with Baingan bharta, pickles or Raita.


  1. You can use pickles spice instead of chat masala if you have. It enhances taste of filling.
  2. Green chillies can be adjusted as per your taste.
  3. Onion and green chillies should be fine chopped.
  4. Roll dough softly with light pressure otherwise filling can come out.
