URADACHI AAMTI | DESI URAD DAL AAMTI |SPLIT BLACK URAD DAL AAMTI|उडदाची आमटी

Uradachi Aamti is an authentic Maharashtrian dish.Its nothing but a curry made from mixed pulses like split black urad dal (not whole black urad dal) and chana dal.Here we are adding chana dal so that the gravy gets a smooth and thick texture.

Mixed pulses have a very high level of proteins in them.Hence it is a good option for vegeterians.Also these mixed pulses maintains our digestive system and boosts our energy levels.So having them in our diet is really essential.

Here I am preparing this dal aamti in traditional desi style where we are not going to use any kind of garam masala’s.Instead we are going to prepare it with the fresh desi masala’s like whole coriander seeds,ginger,garlic.green chillies and sliced dry coconuts.And mind,the curry’s prepared by using this fresh desi masala’s tastes divine…

This aamti was often prepared by mother…and the same trend continues in my family also.The aamti is generally served with Bajra Bhakri and Rice.You can have it with Chapati’s also but traditionally it goes perfect with Bhakri’s only…

So lets quick start with this recipe..
