Stuffed Sattu Paratha or Chatur Paratha

Hope everyone is taking care of themselves, friends and family. We all have to help ourselves, keep unity and stay together in this tough time, the Whole World is facing. Self-quarantine and social distancing are the two key words we all have to remember right now.

And I believe if we are immuned enough from inside, we can fight such viruses efficiently. Sharing one such recipe, which can give you more power to fight with any diseases.
Sattu, made from roasted Bengal Gram(Chana dal/Cholar dal), is called "the poor man's protein", is a flour-like ingredients which is high in protein and often called, 'the powerhouse of  energy". It is good for suppressing diabetes and high blood pressure. It's high on protein, insoluble fiber, which makes it good for your intestines and is low on glycemic index, making it safe and beneficial for diabetics. Plus it has good proportions of iron, manganese, magnesium and is low on sodium too..

Some popular food items made with Sattu is Litti (a popular food item made in Bihar), Sattu Sharbat etc. Anything you add this flour into upgrades the taste instantly. I often make Sattu paratha, Sattu sharbat and Sattu kabab at home. I even add some sattu regularly in my whole wheat flour (atta) to make rotis. The Sharbat made with Sattu, is also a brilliant way to detoxify the system of greasy food. It also contributes generously to the growth of muscle mass.
So, now let's move on to the is very easy to make. It is like any other stuffed paratha, only the filling is made of sattu. You can serve these on breakfast, kid's or adult's lunch-box. It's very filling and nutritious. I often make it for breakfast, too.
