Sattu ka paratha

I love the rustic nature of Bihari food,it requires very little time for preparation,and not many ingredients,but what it does definitely require are very deft hands from years of practice.Sattu is the powder of roasted gram( while besan is the flour of the  not roasted one).Sattu is very popular in the hot plains of northern India,for its cooling effect ,and is widely consumed in many forms.Sattu paratha is a flat bread with a sattu stuffing,commonly had in breakfast.
