I leave the choice to you, you can either prepare mudde(finger millet balls), ambode or majjige menasu along with majjige huli or simply relish the dish with rice & papad or pickle.
1 medium sized old cucumber/mangalore southekayi
1 cup curd (it should be little sour)
½ inch ginger (grated)
1 tbsp channa dal soaked in water for 30mins
3-4 curry leaves
1/4th cup coriander leaves/cliantro
¼ tsp fenugreek/methi seeds
1 cup grated coconut
3 green chillies
Salt according to taste
1 broken red chilli
½ tsp mustard seeds
A generous pinch of hing/asafoetida
1 tsp oil
- Peel the skin & remove the seeds of the old cucumber. Chop it into 1 inch sized cubes. Add little water & cook the vegetable until soft.
- Meantime, make a fine paste of coconut, green chilli, ginger, methi seeds, coriander leaves & soaked channa dal.
- Add salt & the paste to the cooked vegetables & boil it.
- Beat the curd for 30 secs, add equal amount of water & make thin butter milk out of it.
- Add this butter milk to the boiling mixture & reduce the flame.
- Cook this for 5 minutes (the mixture should just start to boil). Ensure to switch off the flame immediately (don’t over boil the mixture as it contains butter milk)
- Prepare the tempering in a separate pan, by adding oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves, broken red chilli & hing (in the same order mentioned). Pour this over the mixture prepared.
- Serve it hot with rice & majjige menasu (fried chilli)
PS: This curry is best to be consumed hot as it has butter milk, the curry may turn sour if it is not used for 4-5 hours (again depends on the outside temperature…)

Love this majjige huli..Even my father does not like this..So my mom will make Bondas along with this..So we all eat more..Yummy..ReplyDelete
Wow..looks yum..would go well with spicy hot side dish..We have a similar dish in Kerala cuisine,called Olan..I am a so big fan of it..:)ReplyDelete
tumba chennnagide kanrii:)ReplyDelete
When i was a kid, i used to hate eating this,only reason being my mom used to add methi seeds to the curry.Your idea of hiding methi by grinding it sounds perfect.Will try this :)ReplyDelete
Love majjige huli.. Tumba ne chennagiede, madi nodtini.. Nice entry !!ReplyDelete
This is something new for me.But i love curries which have buttermilk/yogurt in it.ReplyDelete
My father eats with mudde. My fav is majjige huli + kadalebele vade or majjige menasu. I just love them. Thanks for the comments.
I have heard of Olan, my malayali friend keeps telling about that. As I understand from her that, they wont add channa dal, ginger & other things. It is made with more coconut & curd. Try Karnataka version of Olan & try how it tasted.
Thanks for the comments.
Thank you. Do try & let me know how it was..

Something new to me. Looks yum.ReplyDelete
The huli looks so yummy. Though I love the cucumber one, the fried bhindi and pakoda/chana dal fritters one would be my fav. Can you tell I like fried food :DReplyDelete
Very interesting recipe. Love it.ReplyDelete
If you dont like cucumbers, you can replace it with winter melon/ ash gourd or chaote squash. They all taste equally good. Thanks for the comment.
This is my mom's way of doing majjige huli, South canara people prepare it in a different way.Both taste equally good. Thanks for the comments.
As mentioned, I'm an ardant fan of it, because of my son.., it has become once a while dish for us :(
Thanks for the comment.
