The clip begins with Jake adding ajwain seeds, nigella seeds and salt to the flour before he starts kneading it for the flatbread. Jake prepares fresh sattu at home by grinding roasted chana. Next, he adds chopped garlic, ginger, onion, green chilli, coriander leaves, ground cumin, mustard oil, lemon juice and salt to the sattu. After mixing it all properly, Jake places a portion of the stuffing on the kneaded flour and wraps it completely, so the stuffing doesn’t come out while cooking. Once it is sealed properly, he rolls it out and cooks it. Jake Dryan shared the clip along with the Bhojpuri track being played in the background. Watch the full reel here:
