Sattu ki Kachori

Bihar boasts of a very rich, varied, spicy and colourful cuisine. A typical daily Bihari meal would consist of bhat, dal, roti, tarkari and achar. Cuisine of Bihar has become distinguished for its exclusive taste, conventional methods of cooking and variety of flavor. Mustard oil and ghee are the preferred medium of cooking.

Sattu, which has very high nutritional value, is a commonly used ingredient in Bihari cuisine. Many breakfast dishes or snacks are made from this ingredient, for example, a healthful drink made with sattu, milk, cashew nuts, pista and raisins. Other popular items are Sattu Paratha and Litti.

Today I am sharing the popular Sattu ki Kachori recipe, given to me by my sister-in-law.

Try it with Baingan Bharta.

  13. Thanks Arundhuti for nice recipe of Sattu ki kachori. We were not having any Pickle with us, here in Taiwan, and wanted to eat it. So your suggestion that we can use "Lemon Juice" instead of pickle seems great idea. Now we are working on it. You are welcome to join us :-)
