Moringa, murungai, Nuggekai, Mulakkaya, sahjan dal, shevga amati, maharashtrian amatiIngredients:
1/2 cup Toor Dal
7 to 8 Drumstick pieces (4 inch length)
For Seasoning: 1 tbsp Oil, 1/4 tsp Mustard seeds, 1/4 tsp Cumin Seeds, 1/8 tsp Asafoetida, 1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
5 to 6 Curry Leaves (Know more: Health Benefits of Curry Leaves)
4 to 5 Green Chilies, Sliced lengthwise
1/4 cup grated Coconut
1/4 cup Cilantro, finely chopped
1 to 1 1/2 tsp Goda Masala
1 tsp Jaggery
3 to 4 Kokum
Salt to taste

1) Wash and pressure cook Toor Dal for 6 to 7 whistles. Then Pressure cook drumsticks for 2 to 3 whistles. Add little salt to drumsticks while pressure cooking. Do not pressure-cook Toor Dal and Drumsticks together. Drumsticks need lesser time to cook. If Drumsticks for 6 to 7 whistles, they will become mushy.
2) Mash cooked Toor Dal, Heat a pan, add Oil and let it heat. Then add Mustard seeds, Cumin Seeds, Asafoetida, Turmeric, curry leaves and Coconut. Saute for few seconds. Add Cilantro and saute for more 15 seconds. Add mashed Toor dal in this seasoning and stir. Also add water to adjust consistency.
3) Once Amati starts boiling, add cooked Drumsticks. Stir and add Goda Masala, Kokum and salt. Let it boil over medium heat for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, add Jaggery and boil for 2 more minutes. Turn off heat, cover pan with lid for 2-3 minutes to mingle all the flavors.
Serve Amati with white rice. Drizzle little ghee to enhance the flavor.
