Khasta Bharwan Ghathi (Sattu Stuffed Kachoris)

Sattu is a grounded powder of pulses ans cereals like gram dal, green gram, jowar, wheat etc. and the difference between sattu and besan is that sattu is made from roasted gram dal whereas besan is made from raw gram dal.
Dishes made from sattu is very popular in UP and Bihar. It has a very high nutritional value and many breakfast dishes and snacks are made from it like sattu paratha and litti and it is taken as a healthy drink also when mixed with milk or water.
