For The Filling

  • ¾ cup Sattu flour
  • ½ cup finely chopped Onions
  • 1 teaspoon grated Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced Green chili
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped Coriander leaves
  • 2 to 3 tablespoon Pickle oil see notes

  • ¾ teaspoon Salt to or taste


  • Combine whole wheat flour, salt and water and knead to a smooth non sticky and supple dough.
  • Set aside.
  • In a wide mixing bowl, place all the ingredients for filling and mix thoroughly.
  • To make the parathas, divide the dough into 6 parts.
  • Shape each part into a ball.
  • Dust with flour and roll into a thick circle
  • Spread a little ghee on top.
  • Now, place a tablespoon of filling in the center and bring together the edges.
  • Pinch and seal.
  • Flatten this ball and dust with flour.
  • Roll into thin circles. Do this gently to avoid tearing.
  • Once done, heat a tava.
  • Place the paratha and cook till brown spots appear.
  • Smear oil and flip and cook again till brown spots appear again.
  • Remove from flame and serve hot with yogurt and ghee.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough and filling to make the remaining parathas.


Sattu Paratha tastes best when the filling is made using mustard oil based pickles. Mango pickle oil works best here.
In case you dont have access to these pickles, add a tablespoon of mustard oil in addition to the oil you are using.
