Roasted Gram/Sattu Appe


I have already shared two appe recipes. A delicious and healthy south Indian snack.

This time mix match the taste of south and east. Appe made of Sattu or roasted gram.

The flour made of roasted gram or Sattu is most popular in Bihar. Sattu is a wonder food packed with nutrition and loads of health benefits.

It is good for diabetic and blood pressure patients, rich in protein and fiber. It’s cooling properties make it a perfect summer food.

And this wholesome meal is beneficial for all age groups.
Enjoy the appe with cool Sattu sharbat or drink.
