Chatur Paratha or Sattu ka paratha is an Indian Flatbread stuffed with roasted Bengal gram powder or Sattu (Chatu) and is a famous bread from Bihar.
- 100g All-Purpose Flour /Maida ( Can be substituted with Atta or Wheat Flour)
- 200g Whole Wheat Flour
- 150g Dry roasted Bengal Gram Powder / Chatu /Sattu
- 1 Onion (medium)-Thinly chopped
- 4-5 Green Chili
- 1 Tsp. Sugar (optional)
- 1 Tsp. Salt
- 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
- 1 Tbsp. Mustard Oil
- 100ml Vegetable Refined Oil to shallow fry Parathas (can be substituted with Ghee/ Clarified Butter)
- 2 Tbsp. Butter(optional; I don't use it)
- Mix Chatu along with 1/2 Tsp. salt, sugar and chopped chilies, chopped onions, lemon juice and mustard oil.
- Prepare medium tight dough of both Flour along with 1/2 Tsp. salt and 1 Tbsp. Refined Oil and keep it aside for 15 minutes.
- Divide the dough into 7-8 round balls or so.
- Roll out each ball to make a small circle of 2 cm diameter and stuff the circle with 2-3 Tsp. of Chatu/ Sattu mixture.
- Heat a Tawa/ flat pan. I prefer to use a non-stick Pan for preparing Paratha.
- Roll one stuffed Flour ball with the help of a rolling pin into a round-shaped Paratha or flatbread of around 5 cm diameter and put in on the Tawa and roast from both sides. Apply little vegetable oil/ Ghee on the Paratha and shallow fry from both sides till the Chatu Paratha turns golden brown.
- Prepare Parathas with the rest of the staffed balls following the process mentioned.
- Spread some butter over the Paratha and serve it hot with Achar/ Pickle and Green Chili.
- We love to have Sattu Paratha/ Chatur Paratha with Mirch ka Achar.
