We become dehydrated during the long summer days due to the heat and heated breezes. Even if we are staying inside, the weather has had an impact on us. While there are numerous foods that might help us maintain a cool body temperature, sattu is one of these superfoods that you can eat this summer. This underappreciated component, commonly referred to as "poor man's protein," is a relatively recent cuisine that is quickly gaining traction. Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, and Uttar Pradesh are to be credited for the newly gained, much-deserved attention of this neglected food component.
