The Maharashtrian Amboli is a unique pancake made of a quick and easy rice flour batter. It takes just a few minutes to mix the ingredients into a batter and there is no need to ferment either.

The secret to getting the perfectly-textured Amboli lies in the consistency of the batter, which must not be very thin or thick.

If you get the batter of a proper dropping consistency, you will get nice and spongy Ambolis. Serve it hot, because rice flour tends to get chewy over time.

Relish it with any Maharashtrian subzi for a hearty meal. Try other subzis like Mixed Vegetable Subzi and Palak Matar Paneer Subzi .

This is not Amboli, this is a ghavna. Amboli is made up of chana, urad and rice flour. Pls make the corrections.

Just tried amboli with Gravy vegetable last night. I was in no mood to make parathas and do rolling. Amboli tasted so good with my gravy vegetable and is light on stomach too. Its fun to eat it hot and instant to make too.
