Dhamari, as the name implies, is related to Dhamara tala of fourteen beats. Essentially, dhamari takes the final three matras of dhamara and compresses it to one and half beats. The only difference is that the final bol is ka, rather than dha. Because of the flow of dhamara (fourteen beats), it is considered to be a misra jati tala.
