Sattu is a very common in North India. However, few people from other parts of India don't even know about this super food! Yes, it is definitely a super food. Basically it is roasted gram flour. It has a lot of fibre, proteins and other minerals. It is very good for digestion. Low gycameic index makes it awesome for diabetic patients. It helps in maintaining cool body temperature.
