Sattu vegetable parantha

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk of chronic diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.

Sattu or powdered roasted grams is one of the most healthiest foods on earth. Its packed with nutrients and tastes great. Sattu is native to the state of Bihar, and Sattu ke parathe is a wholesome breakfast option. Sattu can be easily bought off at any grocery store. 

In this series of Diet Food you will find Healthy and Tasty Nutritive Recipes .....

The Health Benefits:
Apart from providing the body with energy, what makes sattu, quite a unique ingredient is that its preparing process (Dry roasting)keeps the nutritional values in place, and it can also be stored for longer. It's high on insoluble fiber which makes it good for your intestines, and is low on glycemic index, making it safe, and in fact  beneficial for diabetic. plus it has good proportions of iron, manganese and magnesium, and is low on sodium too.

Generally in Bihar they make sattu paratha by stuffing the mixture in wheat roundels I gave a 

nutritive twist to this simple sattu ka parantha . I mixed sattu and grated vegetables in wheat 

flour to make it more healthier. Here is the recipe .....

Sattu Vegetable Parantha

Vegetable parantha



1 cup wheat flour 
1 Cup Sattu (Powdered Roasted Chana Dal)
1 small onion finely chopped
1 green chilly finely chopped
Pinch of turmeric powder
1/4 tsp ajwain seeds
1/4 tsp onion seeds
1/2 cup grated mix greated vegetables 
3/4 tsp  salt or to taste
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tsp coriander leaves
1/2 tsp olive oil 


In a Bowl, mix all the ingredients mentioned above . Mix well and add a little water to bind. The consistency should be enough to bind the stuffing together and make a soft dough. Add a little more water if required.
To make parathas, make small rounds of the dough (about lemon size). Roll it a little using a rolling pin and dusting with dry flour.
Dust with dry flour and roll it out nice and round. 
Place the paratha on a pan, gently drizzle 3-4 drops of oil on the paratha and the sides. Let it cook evenly from both sides till nice golden brown
Serve hot with mint chutney and curd.

Oats dosa with drumsticks sambhar

Oates Dosa

Health is wealth is really important to be fit and healthy. I realised that, some change in lifestyle can help in maintaining a balanced diet. To apply it in daily routine...I have started a Diet food series.
There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting. My dietitian sugges…

 Jaggery Coated roasted chickpeas 



Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.

She was excellent at cooking all panjabi dishes like sarson ka saag, makkai ki roti, gur ke chawal  or any vegetable like turnip or kormas, . I have learnt almost all panjabi dishes from her and I really wanted to thank her for that , today whatever I make related to punjab reminds me of her . Lov…
