- Take an equal combination of all the millets that you would like to use and grind them together to make a fine powder.
- Store the powder mix in a glass bottle for further use.
- When you want to make the ‘ambali’, take ½ cup of the powder mix in a pan and add 1.5 cups of water to it.
- Mix well and see that there are no lumps.
- Now put the pan on the stove and keep stirring till cooked. It should change colour, get a boil and become thicker. Add the salt now, mix well and then it is done.
- Don’t leave it without mixing continuously as it will form lumps and it will burn and stick to the bottom of the pan.
- Depending on the consistency you prefer, you can add more water while cooking.
You can add any of these ingredients to suit your taste – buttermilk, pepper, curry leaves powder, jaggery or lemon juice.
