SATTU HEARTS

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 https://www.amrutamindia.com/ magic element that made my sattu hearts amazing.
