Homemade Satthu

Hello spring where are you? Yes, I keep asking this since there are thunder storms with heavy down pour every day. It was an unusual winter with completely dry days and nature fooled us all including the trees to bloom with flowers of bright yellow, white, orange and many more when there was just a few days of sunshine. Oh well, mother nature is so unpredictable and so powerful. Seasons change makes my little one who turned two months sleeps even longer! He loves to sleep bundled up tightly in his swaddle and it surely is such a joy to watch him. This also gives me extra time to make something for the sweet tooth; something that is fast, easy and satisfying not to mention it brings back memories when it was always there in our kitchen growing up. Here I am sharing this recipe with you so you can build memories with your family too.

1 cup roasted channa dal powdered
1/2 cup powdered sugar or per taste
1 cardamom pod powdered
2 tbsp ghee
Edible silver for decoration (optional)

Heat ghee in a kadai then add the channa powder, stir until you get the aroma. Now add the powdered sugar, taste and adjust. Then add the cardamom, mix well. While it is warm, roll into small balls, stick edible silver. Let it cool before storing in an airtight container.

NOTE:The roasted channa dal is the one used in making coconut chutney

Super easy, delicious and satisfying ~ Satthu

    Where do you get the edible silver? Thanks.

    • 365DaysVeg says:

      Shruti, you get it most of the stores in India. Sometimes, even temples sell them. It is very common in Indian sweets, so should not be hard to find it.

    I have made besan laddu- never this. Am definitely going to try. BTW; I stumbled on to your blog because I know of Sattu as a flaky white material used for making parathas etc. in Bihar; and I just thought you’d made that at home 🙂

    • 365DaysVeg says:

      Hey Deepika, I know Satthu means different things in different regions in India but where I come from, this is the recipe 🙂
      I would love to know your version too.

    I think ‘Yummy’ would be a small word to describe this beautiful recipe. Absolutely lip smacking!! Excellent work!

  8. Edible silver? I didn’t even know there was such a thing, but how neat! Love your blog! 🙂

    • 365DaysVeg says:

      Yes, its very popular in India, rich sweets are not complete without it. In earlier days it was made brutally which I do not want to discuss hence Jain temple’s banned it but these days machinery is used to make it and Im glad.
