Watch Dogra style preparation of Ambal

Ambal dogra style

Ambal is the name of a dogra cuisine that is popular in the Jammu region. Its flavours include red chiles, fenugreek seeds, tamarind, pumpkin, and jaggery. Ambal is typically made in a cast iron skillet over a “chulha,” where wood fires give the food a smoky flavour. Unsurprisingly, it is offered alongside chana and maah dal at “Dhavats,” also known as “Taam.”
