Katachi Aamti

This is a special Aamti (type of curry) wich is served with Puran poli. When we cook chana daal for puran poli, the leftover water of cooked chana daal is called "Kat". This aamti is also known as yelavni in solapur side or in some places called as rasshi, but the method is slightly different than mine.


Kat - 2 cups
Tamarind pulp - 2 table spoon
Jaggery - 3 tea spoon
Chili powder - 2 tea spoon
Goda masala - 2 tea spoon
Salt as per taste
Ready Puran - 1 table spoon
Oil- 2 table spoon
Mustard seeds -1/2 tea spoon
Asafetida - 1 pinch
Turmeric Powder - 1 tea spoon
Curry leaves - 8-10
Chopped Coriander - 1 tea spoon
Water as needed

In a vessel, add Kat, Tamarind pulp, Jaggery, chili powder, Goda masala, puran and solt. Bring this to boil. You can add water if you find it thick. Boil for 2 minutes. In a small kadai, heat oil and add mustard seeds, when it starts spluttering add curry leaves, turmeric powder and asafetida. Pour this tadka to the aamti. Mix wel and again boil for 2 minutes. Garnish with coriander and serve hot with Puran Poli.

I want to add this post for Purva's Holi Hai event.
