Katachi Amti is a spicy, tangy, watery thin gravy made from the water of Chana Dal (split chickpeas). The Chana Dal is used to make Puran Poli.
The unique taste of Katachi Amti comes from the masala that is used - cinnamon, dry desiccated coconut, cardamom and pepper.
A spoon of tamarind paste is added for tanginess, and to balance everything, a little jaggery is added. The goodness of this dish is that it reduces inflammation and improves blood circulation, aids in digestion and acts as an immunity booster.
Puran Poli is a sweet flatbread that’s wholesome and yummy too. The stuffing of boiled, cooked, and sweetened chana dal is filled in dough and then cooked on tawa.
These combo dishes are contrasting but are yummy and nourishing too.
