Katachi Aamati ( Chaana Daal Rasam) For Arusuvai

For Arusuvai Friendship Chain Manasi send me two homemade powders. One is curry powder which is for 'Chavli Curry' from Nupur's : One Hot Stove blog and second is Masale Bhat powder which is for 'Masala Bhat' from Ashwini's: Food For Thought blog. Thanks Manasi for sending me these lovely powders. For this recipe I am using Curry Powder. Hope you all will love this recipe. I will post next recipe later.

Salt to Taste

1. Blend cooked chaana dal & water. Make a fine paste.
2. Dry roast sesame seeds, coconut and onion individually. Let it cool. Then make a paste of onion, coconut and ginger garlic paste.
3. Heat oil in a sauce pan. Add cumin seeds. When they stop sputtering add curry leaves and hing. Then add onion paste. Cook this paste till it leaves some oil. It will take 3-4 minutes. Then add both masalas. Fry for 2-3 minutes.
4. Then add chaana daal stock & chaana daal paste. If you don’t have chaana daal paste, don’t worry take some extra cooked chaana daal. Add extra water, salt, tamarind pulp & sugar. Boil it for 4-5 minutes.
5. Garnish with finely chopped coriander. Serve this hot aamati with Puran Poli or Hot Rice or you can drink it like Rasam.
