To start with, ‘kat’ means strained stock of boiled dal. Katachi amti is a traditional Maharashtrian recipe made from the left-over stock after boiling chana dal for puran poli stuffing. Trust me, it adds to the taste. It is a powerhouse of over-stocked proteins.

This is different from the usual amti which I posted few days earlier – in taste and preparation too.

It’s made traditionally during puran poli days. It is more watery. It forms a heavenly combo with puran poli and also best eaten with steamed rice.

This year on Holi, enjoy this katachi amti Maharashtrian recipe with family and friends.
