Katachi Amti/Puranachi Amti

Last week when I made Puranpoli/Ubbati my maharashtrian friend/Neighbor suggested me to make katachi/khatachi amti(kat meaning the water that is save after draining the dal) and gave me some of her kholapuri goda masala and I made it and it was so flavourful and tasty. The recipe of making Amti also was given by her and now I am passing it on to you all.
So here is the recipe for Katachi amti.
Served 3-4
Ingredients:
Strained stock of chana dal 2 cup
Dried Coconut grated/ desiccated coconut- ½ cup
Garlic – 2 flakes

Now take a deep dish heaat ½ tbsp oil and add the ground paste/masala and roast it for 2 minutes on low flame.
To this roasted  paste/masala add the drained chana dal water and mix well, add salt to taste and give a nice rolling boil. Allow it to cook for 3 minutes on low flame then switch off the flame and temper.
