Sattu Ka Sharbat / Sattu Ka Namkeen Sharbat

May 11, 2016 Motions and Emotions 13 Comments

Chane ka sattu a famous flour in Bihar and Jharkhand. Chane ka sattu is nothing but flour from roasted grams. Not only Bihar or Jharkhand, it is also famous in West Bengal, UP and MP. You can knead a dough of sattu with salt, onion and pickle and eat it with rice or puffed rice. It is tasty, healthy and nutritious too. In my maternal grand father's house I have seen my cousins drinking sattu ka meetha sharbat (will share the recipe later).

When I went to Kolkata for my graduation I first saw people drinking sattu ka namkeen sharbat like crazy. During my stay at Kolkata, I used to go tutions in the morning. Most of the times the roads were empty in the morning but I used to notice a crowd at a point everyday. Initially I used to think people are gambling with cards so I used to avoid that place and walk really faster to cross that part of the road.

One day the crowd was less and my eyes automatically went their I saw a person sitting with two matkas (pot) of water, some lemons and lemon squeezer. I slowed my speed and noticed he is taking out some powder from a container putting in glass adding lemon juice some masala and finally adding water and serving to everyone. I explained the same thing to my mom over the phone, she said it is nothing but he is selling sattu ka sherbat. I did not have much courage to buy and drink the sharbat from him dur to my hygienic consciousness as a Microbiology student. When I went home during holidays I tried this and like it very much.
