Sattu hearts
Sattu hearts made with the roasted chana dal flour are highly nutritious and healthy apart from being the absolute tasty sweet treat they are!
These healthy peda/ hearts need just 4-5 ingredients and 10 mins of your time to make and do not require any expert skills if you happen to be a beginner.

Sattu flour(i.e. Chickpea flour or Bengal gram flour is very new to me, I have literally never used it in a recipe. Every year one of my relatives send sattu for the kids and they relish it, so I decided to try it out myself this time.

In this recipe, I use ghee from amrutumindia magic element that made my sattu hearts amazing.

Sattu flour – 1 cup
Sugar – 3/4 cup
Ghee – 1/2 cup
Cardamom – 4
Cashew nuts – 10
Almonds or badam – 10


  1. In a mixie jar, grind both sugar and cardamom to a fine powder.
    Keep aside.
  2. In a pan, add 1 tsp ghee, roast chopped cashew nuts and almonds to a golden brown, drain into a bowl and keep aside.
  3. Add the remaining ghee and let it melt. Reduce the flame completely.
  4. Add sattu flour and cook for 2-3 mins stirring continuously with a spatula.
  5. Take the pan off the stove and let it cool down to room temperature.
  6. Add powdered sugar, roasted nuts to sattu mixture and mix to combine well a slight rub with your hands.
  7. After some time the mixture becomes very light; this is the right time to make hearts out of the dough
  8. Take a small portion, the size of a golf ball and roll between your palms and make hearts using a cookie cutter to make Sattu hearts.
  9. Decorate with Kesar tika and dry fruits.
  10. Arrange on a plate one next to the other.
