Amlana / Imli ka amlana recipe with step-wise pictures. Amlana / Imli ka amlana is a tangy and sweet Rajasthani drink prepared with Tamarind and spices. It is appetizer drink served along with Rajasthan thali. It is completely refreshing and makes a great summer drink. I saw this recipe in jeyashriskitchen site and wanted to try it immediately as felt it quite interesting. The original recipe calls addition of black salt. As I didn’t have black salt, I have added chat masala and the drink tastes more like hajmola.
