Sweet sattu sharbat (sweet protein drink)

Sattu is invented by laborers working in the fields for long years ago, since they needed an affordable filling and wholesome meal. It is high in protein content, hence it is ideal for those people, that’s why once upon a time it is called poor men’s food, but this humble sattu is packed with nutrients and actually a wonder food with loads of health benefits.

Making chana ka sattu is a time taking process; I used here ready sattu flour from Bihar but if you don’t have, just grind the roasted chana dal into fine powder, sieve it and use it.

No need to cook, just mix it with water in a glass, eat sattu in any form either ‘Sweet sattu sharwat (sweet protein drink)’ or ‘Salted sattu drink (salted protein drink)’, it’s a great hydrating and cooling drink and for fitness freaks, a post workout protein kick. It is in fact more hydrating than water, so bye-bye to heat stroke with this sattu recipe…

Ingredients:

  • Sattu: 3-4 tablespoon
  • Water: 200-250 ml
  • Sugar/Jaggery: 3 tablespoon (as per taste)
