WHAT IS SATTU - HOW TO MAKE SATTU AND SATTU DRINK
Along with skanjveen, tukh malanga and gond katira, sattu is a deliciously different drink which is a great thirst-quencher for sweltering summer days. It’s lemon barley water Pakistani-style. You can also add ground yellow dhal (channa dhal) or use wheat instead of barley if you prefer. The recipe below is for fresh barley.
100 gr barley seeds
To prepare the barley: -
Soak the barley overnight in water, then the next day, drain them and leave them to dry in the shade.
Heat a heavy-based pan over a low heat and add the dry barley seeds and dry fry them until they turn brown. Be careful not to let them burn.
You can store the powder in an airtight container until you are ready to use it.
Sattu Drink for 1 glass
1 tbsp sattu (prepared as above)
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Mix the sugar into the water well, add the lemon and sattu and mix together, add ice and serve.
This has Taste and is a Treat.
