Majjige huli is a popular accompaniment used with steamed rice. It is made of whisked curds with seasoning and other spices. It makes a good meal for summer. This is a signature dish of Karnataka. It is known by different names in various states. Paladya, mor kozhambu, majjige huli and kadhi are the different names for this dish.

There is a slight variation in the preparation of each one of these, but the primary ingredient remains the same, it  is sour curd.

I have made using ash gourd. Ash gourd pieces tastes great with it. Other vegetables such as lady finger, cucumber or boiled potato chunks may be added to it.

Recipe Notes

  • Other vegetables as cucumber, potato or bhendi may be used. Method of cooking differs for each one.
  • Ginger may be used while grinding, I do not use.
  • Curds should be slightly sour. Do not use very sour or curds kept for a longtime. It imparts a bad taste to the food.
  • Add water accordingly.
