Amritti or Imarti

End of Durga Puja and Navaratri is on 10th day and we celebrate the day as DASHAMI or DASHERA. And this is the day when we all pray to Maa Durga for blessings and a prosperous year till  Maa Durga comes next year. We touch our elder’s feet for seeking blessings. Wish all my friends and followers happy Bijoya Dashami and Dashera.

In this special day we used to make some sweet dishes for Misti mukh and for that I made some AMRITTI or IMARTI though the shapes are not that good but the taste is really good. Hope you all like my recipe.

1. Split black gram skinless or Biulir Dal : 1 small cup.
2.Any unscented Rice: ¼ cup.
3.Orrange food color: Few drops.
4.Sugar: 3 cup.
5.Water 2 cup.
6.Few saffron strands.
7.Few green cardamom.
8.Few pistachios.
9.Few drop of ghee.
10.Sunflower oil for frying.


In a heavy bottomed vessel add the sugar water cardamom and make thick sugar syrup when it starts boiling add the saffron strands. The sugar syrup needs to be thick but not make it too thick. Keep the sugar syrup warm.

Now in a bowl soak the rice and dal for 1 hour, now in a blender make a smooth batter with the soaked dal and rice with one cup of water.

Now add the food color and grind it once again. Now pour the batter in a bowl and add the ghee and mix well.

Pour enough oil in a heavy bottomed vessel in very low flame.

Pour the batter in a cup cake designer container as I use or you can use a zip lock bag also and cut a small hole in one corner.

Now press the bag or the container and make one circle first on the oil then make some small small round shape circle on top of that or you can make your Amritt’s as u want.

Fry both the sides in very low flame till it become cruncy, now soak them into the sugar syrup for 4 to 5 mints, and then remove from sugar syrup and garnish the pistachios.

Enjoy your Hot Amritti’s on the specila day with all your friends and family.
