My recipe for sattu roti-to make 10 rotis
2 cups sattu
1 grated onion
Juice of one large lemon
Achaar ka masala from any pickle
1 tbsp Chopped dhaniya
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp ajwain, mangrela
Salt to taste
Mix all this together with hand. Check for salt and it should taste lemony. This is your filling.I remember how mummy used to give each of us one small round ball to taste!
2.5 cups aata
Make dough. Fill in, like you would stuff aloo. Roll out and cook as chapatis. It can also be greased with oil or ghee and made as parathas.
Serve with gravy veggie and ghee. I served it with kadeema sabzi. In bihar it is served with aloo chokha, desi version of mashed potatoes. Mummy also made baingan and tamatar bharta with this.
Another variation to the filling is adding mooli, which tastes good and makes the filling moist and easy to fill.
My MIL fills them as littis, shaping them as round balls, them boiling them in water. The littis rise up as they cook. Then she fries them. This way it uses up very little oil and you can have them without ghee too.
In my village, the littis are cooked in chulha, and they taste better than anything else on earth to me!
