Summer! The season when we finally get respite from chilly weather and ditch warm sweaters only to replace it with hot pants and sundresses! Do you know why I love summers? Well, because I get to eat Cornetto and drink my favourite sherbets without any guilt. Since I originate from Bihar, there’s one staple summer cooler that is drunk by all my family members religiously. So, what’s that liquid refreshment? Well, it’s the good ole Sattu Sharbat! I’m sure you all are familiar with what sattu is, for the ones who do not know, sattu is nothing but roasted black or bengal gram. People often call it the “poor man’s protein” because it’s a cheap and affordable source of protein.
Enough about sattu. Now let’s know why we should drink sattu sharbat during summer? There has to be some reason and logic behind it, right? Well, for starters, it’s healthy, tasty, and super affordable! If you want to be healthy and would rather avoid frequently visiting the hospital due to summer rash and heat strokes, then gulp this amazing sattu drink throughout the hot season. Let me tell you some benefits of drinking sattu sharbat during garmiyon ka mausam.
Cools your stomach and body
I’ve seen many youngsters drinking colas and slush to cool themselves up. Well, guys, give this humble sattu drink a try and I’m sure you’ll forget about those carbonated beverages forever. Bas aur kya chahiye! Sattu instantly cools down your stomach and body. Don’t believe me, try it to know!
During summers, we all become lethargic and to top it off we sweat like horses that almost drop our energy level to zero and even negative. If you drink sattu sharbat in the morning you will feel energized for many hours.
Promotes good digestion
I’ve seen many people suffering from various digestive issues during the summer season due to the weakening of the digestive system during the warm season. Sattu drink possesses a high content of dietary fibre which allows good digestion and alleviates constipation.
Best for people on-the-go
I’m the kind of person who’s always in a rush! We have places to go during the morning and with that awful traffic and anxiety to reach the destination on time we hardly get enough time to have a hearty breakfast. Not to worry anymore because you can make this sattu drink within 1 minute and then your morning breakfast would be sorted.
Since you know the benefits, let me show you how I make my sattu sharbat. Mix 1-2 tablespoons of sattu in a glass of chilled water. Squeeze 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, half teaspoon of roasted cumin powder and black salt to taste. That’s about it! Enjoy this lovely summer refreshment!
