How to make Maharashtrian Amti

v

Maharashtrian Amti is comforting dal spiced with the cuisine’s special Goda masala. You can serve this dal with rice or roti as well.

When I picked up Maharashtrian Thali to make, I completely forgot that I haven’t made their popular Amti yet. I always thought I had already done it. So when I was planning the menu with Pradnya, I was thinking I should ask for a dal recipe that I can pair for the rice.

Only when I realised that I am yet to make Amti, I simply had to make it. When I went through the recipe I realised the major difference is the use of Goda Masala in the dal. I still have stocked the Goda Masala that Pradnya gave us and it’s been sparingly used and is safely kept in the fridge. I asker her if it will be fine. She asked me to taste and confirm. It was still good and I was so glad I could use it.

The dal is almost like a thick Arachuvitta Sambar taste with the ingredients that go in.

We are starting the BM#88, Week 3, where I will be sharing some Dazzling Dals.

  1. I looked at amti when I made Maharashtrain thali couple of years ago. Now you are tempting me to make it very soon. I still have some of the goda Masala Pradnya gave us.

  2. Ambti is a staple in Maharashtra. My Mom made it every single day, of course without onion or tomato. 🙂 It does make a nice addition to any meal. Your version has come out great, perfect color.

  3. I keep hearing so much about these traditional Maharashtrian recipe. I am yet to make them. Amti looks creamy and delicious and Love your thali Valli.

  4. I love Maharashtrian amti because they pack lot of flavor – they are sweet, spicy and tangy — all at the same. Your Maharashtrian thali looks so yummy!!
