Hope everyone had a good start of year and if not that good then don't worry we can make happen to be a good one :)  As promised it's time for me to start posting now and I'm starting with Litti, it's something like stuffed baati.  This is first time I ate and made litti, normally at our place it made as paratha and known as sattu paratha or roti. 

I wanted to make sattu paratha for so long now and since it's been raining here thought of giving it a try in litti way (more to avoid rolling ;) )  It's a simple recipe only list of ingredients looks long.  One can deep fry the litti too but I preferred to bake same as we do for baati.

Let's check out the recipe now ...


For Stuffing:

Sattu - 1 cup [ or roasted gram powder, check recipe below]

Onion - 1 large chopped

Green Chili - 3-4 chopped [according to taste]

Cilantro - 3 tbsp chopped

Garlic - 1 tbsp chopped

Lemon Juice - 1 tbsp [ or use Dry Mango/amchur powder 1 tsp]

Mustard Oil - 1 tbsp [ or use pickle oil]

Carom/Thyme Seeds - 1/2tsp

Onion Seeds - 1/2 tsp

Salt - to taste

For Covering/Dough

Wheat Flour - 2 cups

Onion Seeds - 1/2 tsp

Carom/Thyme Seeds - 1/2tsp

Oil - 1 tbsp

Soda - 1/2 tsp

Salt  - to taste

Ghee - 2 tbsp or more

Water -


1. Mix wheat flours, seeds, oil, salt, soda, water and knead to stiff dough, cover with a wet cloth and keep aside.

2. To make sattu, roast gram daal for 2-3 mins in medium flame and once it's cool grind to fine powder in mixer.  Sieve the powder and grind again if required. 

3. Mix all the ingredients under stuffing with roasted gram powder and check for salt and spices.  If the stuffing is too dry sprinkle little water.

4. Preheat oven to 375 F.

5. To make latti, take the dough and divided in to equal size balls. 

6. Roll the balls into 2 to 3 diameter circle and add 1-2 tbsp stuffing in center and seal all the edges well, shaping into a ball again.  Repeat the process for rest.

7. Place all the stuffed latti in a try and bake for 30 mins at 375 F OR 15mins one side and another 15mins for another side OR until golden brown. 

Bake for 10 more minutes if required, mine was done in 30mins. 

To server break the latti and pour ghee, more ghee and it taste better;).   Bharta/chokha, chutney, pickle, Aloo Tari or curd etc goes well with latti.  We had with Aloo Tari.


1. If you have some left over roasted gram powder, add sugar to it and eat..it taste very gud :)

2. It good to eat latti during winter or rainy season.

3. Do not eat too many of these as it generate heat in body.

4. For good result eat while it hot or warm.

Have a good day :)
