S is for… Sattu ke Laddu #AtoZChallenge
Sattu Ke Laddu
How many of you have heard of and tasted Sattu?
Well, for those who haven’t, Sattu is nothing but roasted Bengal Gram Flour which is also known as Dalia.
[ctt template=”5″ link=”7wdBk” via=”no” ]In my humble opinion Sattu is also the the most underrated flour in India, despite it being the most versatile. [/ctt]It is packed with protein, it is an instant coolant, a great source of insoluble fiber and with a low glycemic index it is perfect for Diabetics.
Enough of the Nutrition lessons though! See these Sattu ke Laddus? I made them in exactly 15 minutes, no kidding! You could too, if you follow my recipe here.
Apart from making super delicious laddus, Sattu stuffed Parathas taste simply awesome as well. And with summers beating down upon us mercilessly, discard your fizzy, sugary aerated drinks and cool down instantly with a simple and quick Sattu drink made by mixing it with Jaggery and water and a dash of lime. Use Sattu to give body to your chutneys and gravies without the guilt of unwanted calories, a great substitute for Coconut in both.
And mind you, these are just a few uses of Sattu! Google to find more!
When I discover something good I have this pressing need to Share it. Immediately, and with as many people as I can!
And I do.
The funny thing is some people get Suspicious, namely about why I am sharing something and then the question, that makes people fall in my eyes faster than the Sensex does after Trump makes an announcement, is asked, ‘What are YOU getting out of it?’
Ewwwww, what an off put-er! The thought process behind the question disgusts me!
[ctt template=”5″ link=”79Xj6″ via=”no” ]I can’t decide whether people have become suspicious or selfish, or both.[/ctt] Or does being selfish make one suspicious or is it vice versa?
And if helping out people by sharing something is going to be looked upon dubiously and then questioned I feel really sad for this world, and a little bit for myself as well.
