Majjiga Pulusu or Buttermilk stew is a kind of stew where vegetables or greens are cooked in buttermilk,seasoned and then thickened a little bit.My favorite is always the one with greens.My mom makes this with buttermilk or even with fresh coconut milk.Given a chance,I would prefer the coconut milk one.For today,I am posting here a different version of this majjiga pulusu which my mother-in law and my sis-in law make usually.Today I used bottle gourd and tomato to make in my majjiga pulusu.This is one is equally tasty.So,here we go down the recipe.
Grind to a paste:
1 tbsp grated coconut
1/4 tsp grated ginger
3 green chiliies
1/4 tsp coriander seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp rice+ 1 tsp chana dal(soaked in water for atleast 30 mins and water drained out)
for the stew:
1 cup thick beaten curd
choice of veggies/greens .
Salt to season
Popu ->1/2 tsp mustard,cumin and 2 red chillies fried in a tsp of oil with a dash of asfoetida for flavor.
1.Boil veggies in salted water.
2.Add beaten curd.
3.Add ground paste.
4.Boil for 2 Min’s
