Amti lentil curry split lentil
Amti is a popular food item in West India, particularly Maharashtra. In the evenings, you could see it being prepared for the dinner in many Maharashtrian homes. Amti is a very unique way to make daal.
Amti is somewhat spicy and tangy in taste.
To prepare amti we need 1 cup toor daal,
Four onion of medium size, a few curry leaves, coriander leaves, godamasala(2 tablespoon). Little chilly powder, jaggery as per your wish.
Get ready with all this stuff and cook the toor daal in a pressure cooker. We should not cook it to the extent that that daal looses its structure. Now mash the daal with a ladle or the back of a serving spoon.
Take refined oil approx 3 tablespoon and heat it up. When it becomes hot, add some mustard seeds into it. Put a little bit of hing , turmeric powder and mix curry leaves.
Now add onion and cook it in oil till it turns brown.
When ready, add cooked toovar daal to it. Add tamarind paste, chili , salt , jaggery etc. Mix well and add some water. Water should be added as per requirement such that the daal doesn’t loose its taste.
Allow it to cook for sometime till it starts boiling. For added flavor, put coriander leaves in it. When you get the correct sweet and tangy taste, your Amti is ready to be served.
