Sattu drink or sattu sharbat recipe with step by step photos – healthy summer drink made with roasted gram flour. Roasted black chickpea flour is also known as chane ka sattu.

sattu drink, sattu ka sharbat recipe

I first got introduced to sattu as an ingredient, when we stayed for some days at my husband’s friends place, about 6 years back. Since on occasions, I would cook in the kitchen, one fine day when looking for besan, I opened up a jar of a light yellow colored flour with such a roasted good aroma of chana. I did guess it is a flour made from roasted chana, but did not know its culinary uses then.

Later we asked the friend and he said its called as sattu and this one he had got from bihar. My husband’s friend being from bihar, also told us that they make both sweet and savory drinks with the flour as well as sattu ke parathe, litti chokha and even sattu ke ladoo.

Till now I have just gone the easy route with sattu. I only make sattu drinks 🙂 I buy organic sattu flour and just mix the sattu flour with water. Add flavorings and seasonings and the sattu drink is ready to be served. Both sweet as well as savory drinks can be made with sattu. Here’s the flour pic for you.

Chane ka sattu, can be made at home, but its a time taking process. An easy way is buy some roasted chana without the skin. Then grind them to a fine powder. Seive and store in a bottle.

These drinks made from sattu are cooling in nature plus nutritious too. having a low glycemic index, sattu is good for diabetics. In this post I am sharing the sweet version. You can call it sweet sattu drink or sattu sharbat. I have also added the Savory or namkeen sattu drink. sattu is good for both kids and adults alike.

For this sweet or meetha sattu, you can use jaggery, raw sugar or honey as a sweetener. I make with both sugar and jaggery, but partial to the one made with jaggery. Below picture is of meetha sattu made with jaggery.

The recipe serves 3, though you can just increase the proportions and make a mug full of sattu drink and refrigerate.so do try this meetha sattu in the summers.

  1. Insanely good stuff that I came across while we stayed in Kolkata…now in Toronto, I still crave and drink sattu daily as part of my morning routine haha!

    I was intrigued by your recipe to add jaggery instead of sugar; I have to try that if I can find some gur soon. Thanks for the suggest and keep posting about good recipes like this 🙂

    1. Having sattu drink everyday is a really good habit. Jaggery gives a nice rustic taste. Do try with it. Welcome and thank you.
