Servings 6 pieces


For the filling

  • 2 cups sattu ka aata (roasted bengal gram flour)
  • 2 medium onions finely chopped
  • 3 green chillies finely chopped
  • 6-7 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 inch ginger finely chopped
  • 2 tsp nigella seeds (kalonji, kala jeera)
  • 3 tbsp coriander leaves
  • 1 tbsp mustard oil
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp mango pickled mashed
  • Salt to taste

For the dough

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • ghee/oil for frying the paranthas


  • Mix whole wheat flour and water together, knead to make a soft dough. A well kneaded soft dough leads to softer paranthas. Keep aside covered with a wet muslin cloth till you prepare the stuffing.
  • Mix together all the stuffing ingredients and if the the mixture feels very dry sprinkle a little warm water and mix well.
  • Distribute the dough in 10 balls and roll each ball a little, spread a little ghee/oil on it and place 2 tbsp of filling in the middle, cover from all sides and roll the parantha to 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Repeat for the rest of the paranthas.
  • Heat a tawa or a griddle and cook each side of the parantha till golden brown, add 1/4 tsp of ghee/oil on both sides.
  • Serve your Sattu Parantha hot with curd, pickle and optionally baigan ka bharta
