Majjige huli

Budhkumbalkai/Winter melon- half kg (cut into pieces)
Butter milk or Plain yogurt-1 cup
(I have used home made yogurt with whole milk)
Sour Cream-2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Lemon Juice(optional)

For Seasoning:
Mustard seeds-1tsp
Jeera-1/2 tsp
Black gram-1/2 tsp
Red Chillies-1-2
Cinnamon powder-a pinch
Black pepper powder
Turmeric-1/2 tsp
Hing-a pinch
Curry leaves-8-10

Bengal gram 2 tbsp.(soaked in water for 1 hour)
Coconut(grated)-1/2 cup
Coriander seeds powder-2 tsp
Cumin seeds powder-1 tsp
Green chillies- 5-6
Ginger(grated)-1 tsp.
Chopped coriander leaves-1 tsp.


Grind all the masala ingredients with water to a fine paste.

Boil the Boodh Kumbalkai with water until soft. Add the ground paste and bring it to

boil for 10 minutes.Add yogurt,sourcream and boil for 5 mins.

Heat oil in a pan, add all the ingredients of the seasonings mentioned above.Stir

into the Majjige huli mix.Garnish with coriander leaves.

Serve with rice.You can also have this with Ragi Mudde(Ragi Ball)

If the curd is not sour you can enhance the taste by adding little Lemon juice at the very end.

You also make Majjige huli with other vegetables like Cucumber,Mulangi(Radish),Mangalore cucumber,Dantina soppu(Amaranth leaves),snake gourd(padaval kai)
It tastes Yummy with any of these vegetables.
