AAMTI(Indian Spicy Soup)

Aamti(Indian Spicy Soup):-
Preparation Time:- 10 to 15 minutes
Cooking Time:-10 minutes

This Soup or Aamti is sure to be there in the menu of Puran Poli(Indian Stuffed Sweet Bread). There is no fun of Puran Poli(Indian Stuffed Sweet Bread) without this Aamti. This is one of the ultimate combination of Maharashtrian Cuisine i feel. In some regions of Maharashtra it has some sweet and sour taste,but my mom make it very spicy. And it really goes very well with the Sweet Puran Poli.
