For Paratha Dough

  • 2 Cup Whole wheat flour
  • ½ Tsp Salt
  • ½ Tsp Ajwain/ Carom Seeds
  • 1 Tsp Kalonji /onion seeds
  • 1 Tbsp Ghee /Clarified Butter
  • ½ Cup water or as required

For Filling

  • 1 Cup Sattu / Roasted bengalgram Flour
  • ½ Tsp Ajwain
  • ½ Tbsp Chopped garlic / 3-4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 Tsp Ginger finely chopped / ½" inch ginger
  • 1 Green Chilli chopped
  • 1 Onion medium size chopped
  • ½ Tsp Red chilli powder
  • ½ Tsp Lemon juice
  • 2 Tsp Achaar Masala / Pickle Masala
  • 2 Tsp Mustard oil
  • 3 Tbsp Chopped coriander leaves
  • ½ tsp Salt or as required
  • ¼ cup Water for binding or as required


  • Take whole wheat flour in a bowl  , add salt,ajwain, kalonji and ghee/oil.Make well shape in the centre, add water and knead dough. Cover the dough with cloth and keep it aside for 15-20 minutes.
  • In a bowl ,take Sattu flour, add chilli powder , salt , mustard oil , finely chopped onions ,ginger, garlic and greens . Mix well.
  • Add little water,part by part and mix the flour ,so that all flour combines together to hold the shape. I added ¼ cup of water. If you add water little or no water ,then it becomes very dry to eat. So i suggest to add water such that flour can just hold shape but it shouldn't be more like a dough.
  • Sprinkle flour over the board ,pinch a small portion of whole wheat flour and roll a medium size paratha.
  • Place sattu mixture at the centre of the rolled paratha, bring the corners together to the centre.
  • Pinch out the excess ,dough. Flatten the stuffed paratha, dust some flour and roll partha to 5-6 cms diameter.
  • Heat a cast iron griddle, place the rolled paratha over a iron griddle.
  • Apply some ghee or oil over the paratha ,flip and cook . You can see paratha puffing while cooking.
  • Flip and cook on both sides till done.
  • Serve Sattu Paratha with Curds and some fresh green salad .
