Sattu and Shakar ka Sharbat

Today Im going to share with you one of my favorite summer drinks that is packed with energy and has a cooling effects on the body too. Its Sattu in Shakar ka Sharbat.

Sattu is basically dry roasted grains that are ground into a course powder or meal. It can be of wheat, barley (jaw), oat, green gram, horse gram (chana dal). A classical favorite of mine is the barley "sattu".

For me I love sattu in shakar ka sharbat. "Shakar" is raw cane sugar or non crystallized brown sugar. Just mix it with water and you have raw cane sugar sherbat. This is a very popular drink in Punjab in both India and Pakistan during the summer.

Let me give you a step by step recipe for this awesome summer cooler.

Step one: Take a glass of cold water

Step 2: Add 4-5 tsps of raw cane sugar ( as per desired sweetness) and stir to make sharbat

Step 3: Now add ice and chill then add 2-3 Tbsps of Sattu and mix and enjoy!
