Sattu Paratha

Sattu is staple made with chana daal and spices and is routinely used in many parts of northern India. Sometime back I got my hand of Chana sattu when shopping at Khadi Bhandar in Lucknow and made these sattu paratha.
While there paratha are very good for breakfast they are super healthy too, as they bring in all goodness of Sattu and are protein rich too.
Let's get to the recipe:

1. Chana sattu 1 cup 
2. 1 1/2 cup wheat flour 
3. 1 medium onion, finely chopped 
4. 1 tbsp of spicy mango pickle( take small pieces or mash them completely)
5. 1 tbsp red chili powder 
6. Salt to taste 
7. Oil for cooking 
8. Water as needed 

1. Knead a soft dough with wheat flour. Add salt while making the dough, apply oil, cover and keep aside 
2. In a bowl, mix sattu, choppes onion, red chili powder, mango pickle and some oil. Mix it well, Add water one tbsp at a time and keep mixing. Sattu mixture should become just moist but not watery 

3. Divide the sattu mix in equal parts. This is going to be stuffing for paratha.
4. Divide the wheat flour dough in equal parts too

5. Roll the wheat flour balls in small circle, place the sattu stuffing and close the paratha. Gently roll paratha and cook on hot tava by applying oil on both sides
Prepare all paratha is similar way.

Serve hot with pickle or curd.
