It is good for diabetic , BP high, gas formation , constipation, weak stomach etc. It does not set heavy on your stomach and even detox  your body , as it is quite rich in soluble fiber.

Method to prepare sattu

First of all roast the Bengal gram or barley or wheat in a frying pan having sand. Roast it at medium flame for 4-5 minutes until it spurts out. Be careful not to let them burn.

After roasting let it cool down . Now rub it with a neat cloth so that all sand  particles shed out .  Now sieve it  .  After sieving grind it and make a powder form . Again sieve it so that un-ground pieces can be taken away. Now put the powder  in an airtight container.
