SATTU; A REALLY REFRESHING DRINK WITH A DIFFERENCE
Along with skanjveen, tukh malanga and gond katira, sattu is a deliciously different drink which is a great thirst-quencher for sweltering summer days. It’s lemon barley water Pakistani-style. The recipe below is for fresh barley.
100 gr barley seeds
To prepare the barley: –
Soak the barley overnight in water, then the next day, drain them and leave them to dry in the shade.
Heat a heavy-based pan over a low heat and add the dry barley seeds and dry fry them until they turn brown. Be careful not to let them burn.
Remove them from the heat and allow them to cool before grinding them to a fine powder.
You can store the powder in an airtight container until you are ready to use it.
Sattu Drink for 1 glass
1 tbsp sattu (prepared as above)
honey to taste
Mix the honey into the water well, addand sattu and mix together, add ice and serve.
