Recipe Cuisine: North Indian
Total Time (Minutes): 40
Onion – 1 small sized chopped
Garlic – 4-5 big cloves,chopped
Ginger – 1 spoon or less grated
Amchoor Powder/Dry Mango powder/Aam Achar Masala – 1 tbsp
Ajwain or Carom seeds – 1 tsp
Green chilies – 2 finely chopped
Mustard Oil OR Any other oil of your choice– 2 tsp
Salt – according to the taste
Knead the Atta. Keep aside for 15 to 20 minutes.
Now chop ginger, garlic and green chilies.
Place a cup of Sattu in a wide bowl. Add to it a tablespoon of mustard oil and salt to taste. Mix well by rubbing the oil and salt in with your fingers till the sattu has evenly absorbed the oil.
At this stage, the Sattu might be drier than you want for the stuffing. To adjust that, add water by the teaspoon if required. Keep mixing it in till the sattu gets the right texture. The filling should be slightly moist, neither powdery nor sticky.
In the end, mix Amchoor Powder,finely chopped garlic, ginger, green chilies and carom seeds into the sattu.
Now Pick a blob of kneaded Atta and roll it into a sphere with your palms.
Press some of the Sattu filling in the mid. Bring the edges of the dough around and seal the edges at the top, flattening the stuffed dough gently.
Roll out the paratha gently.
Heat a flat tava.Place a paratha on the pan to cook on medium heat. When the surface close to the heat starts spotting with brown dots (about 2 mins), flip it over.
Sprinkle a few drops of oil on the paratha and spread it evenly on the surface. After two minutes, flip again and repeat on the other side of the paratha.
When both sides of the sattu paratha are toasted, remove it from heat and serve.
