Steps to Prepare

Making the Batter :

  •  Strain all the excess water of the urad dal and keep aside. Now take a food processor and add 1/4 cup of water to it to make it wet. Now add the urad dal and grind it to make a smooth paste. But turn on the food processor for 30 seconds and take 5 minutes of interval, to make the food processor cool down.
  • Make sure the batter is not warm. It will take at least 30 minutes to grind the dal.
  • Pour the ground dal in a large bowl, add the rice flour and the food color and mix the batter with hand for 2-3 minutes and keep aside.

Making the Sugar Syrup :

  • Now to make the syrup take Sugar and water in a pan and bring it to boil for 5 minutes, add crushed cardamom seeds and few saffron threads to it and turn off the gas.

 How to Make Aamriti :

  • Take a zip lock bag and make a hole with a thin nail. The hole should be very tiny.
  • Fill half the cover with the batter and first practice doing in a plate . Draw two circles, draw small swirl like circles over it.
  • Just practice 2-3 times you will get it right. Then heat a broad, flat bottomed pan(keep the flame in low) with only little oil say 1 inch depth.
  • The oil should not get fully heated, when it starts forming small bubbles in the bottom, then draw Amriti in the oil, repeat the same to make many.
  • Once the Amriti gets cooked ,turn over and cook till crisp and then take out carefully and transfer to the sugar syrup for 2-3 minutes, take them out from the syrup and keep on a serving tray.
