Sattu Paratha

Sattu Paratha is very popular in Bihar/Jharkhand. It is mainly served with Tomato chutney or curd/yogurt. Whenever I visit my home town I make sure that I have enough space in my bag to carry Sattu packs as it is not easily available everywhere. Last time when I visited my Mom's place my maternal uncle gifted me a packet of sattu and ask me to prepare something for my blog so I thought I should share this recipe because nothing can be better than Sattu Paratha.
