About Sattu Sharbat Recipe?

Sattu ka Sharbat is a very simple, desi summer cooler drink that originated in Bihar and is considered an energy drink. The reason it is called a summer drink is because it cools down the body temperature.

Sattu Sharbat is now becoming popular almost everywhere, especially in the hot and humid regions. The popularity can also be attributed to the superfood tag associated with sattu these days.

Sattu Sharbat is one of my favorite childhood drinks. My morning always starts with a glass of sattu ke sharbat which I take in an empty stomach.

Drinking a glass of sattu on an empty stomach in the morning is really good for health.

I remember my mother advising me to take a glass of sattu first thing in the morning, immediately after waking up as a remedy to gastritis and acidity problem that I was facing.

And in less than 2 weeks of doing it, I was able to get rid of it. Such is the benefit of sattu.

What is Chana Sattu?

Chana Sattu is roasted bengal gram flour. Chana Sattu is a staple in every Bihari household.

Sattu is available in many different forms that include wheat, barley or, jowar. All these variations have a certain percentage of a roasted gram in them.

But if you ask me, roasted chana dal sattu is my favorite one. So, In today’s recipe I have used chana sattu.

Sattu also called “poor man food” is considered a wholesome meal, that originated in Bihar.

I still remember, workers and farmers used to prefer sattu along with onion, mustard oil, salt, and green chili as their mid-day meal.

They would just mix everything together with little water, and make a small ball, and have it with some pickle. That not only keeps them full for longer but also provides instant energy to work under direct sunlight and helps prevent lethargy.

Trust me, this combination of sattu also tastes really good. You should give it a try once.

Basic Ingredients used to make Chana Sattu Sharbat:

Chana Sattu: Chana Sattu is the key Ingredient used for this recipe

Lemon Juice: It gives a lovely tang to this drink.

Spices: For the masala sattu drink I have used roasted cumin powder, chaat masala, black salt, pepper powder. You can make roasted cumin powder at home very easily by roasting little cumin on tawa, and gring it in jar. It’s that simple. These spices give a nice taste to it.

Cucumber: This is totally optional. Since cucumber also has cooling properties, so I have used some. If you get raw mango, you can some chopped raw mango to your sattu drink which gives a very nice tang to this drink. So cucumber and mango are optional.

Onion: Onion is again an optional ingredient. But it gives really a nice taste. So if you go towards Bihar you would get sattu drink with onion added to it.

Green Chilli: If you want you can skip green chilli.

Coriander Leaves: I have added coriander leaves, you can skip also. And if you want you can add some mint leaves to it.
