Majjige Huli / Yogurt Curry

Day 16 of Recipe Marathon #2.

Majjige (meaning curds/yogurt in kannada), Huli means thick curry made by grinding coconut with spices(huli also means sour/tangy). I make this whenever I have lots of yogurt at home or sometimes  when I am bored of eating sambar with rice.

Different kinds of squashes are used for making this curry, most common is ash gourd, other veggies and squashes like cucumber, winter squash, chayote, bottle gourd are used. I made this with Chayote (seemebadanikayi/chow chow) squash, which is available in our store all year.



  • Curds/yogurt – about a cup ( I used home made)
  • Chayote squash – 1( skin peeled, core removed, chopped and cooked till tender)

For grinding into paste

  • Coconut grated- 1tbsp or more
  • Dalia Dal/hurigadale – about 2tbsp
  • Cilantro/coriander leaves- 1 big hand full cleaned and washed
  • Chillies red or green – 2 or 3
  • Cumin seeds – 1tsp


  • Oil, mustard seeds, urad Dal and – 1tsp each
  • Hing a pinch
  1. Cook squash with little water, until just tender.
  2. Grind into smooth paste all the above ingredients with adding enough water.
  3. Mix grind paste with yogurt, to the add cooked squash mix well. Add salt and adjust to taste.
  4. Do the tempering by adding mustard seeds and urad dal to to oil, add hing. When dal starts to change color add the tempering to yogurt mixture. Mix well.

Enjoy with hot rice.

    I would like to express appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from such a dilemma. As a result of exploring throughout the the net and obtaining solutions which are not pleasant, I believed my entire life was done. Living minus the approaches to the issues you have fixed as a result of your main post is a crucial case, and ones that might have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I hadn’t encountered your blog. That training and kindness in maneuvering every aspect was important. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a solution like this. I am able to now look forward to my future. Thank you so much for your impressive and sensible guide. I will not think twice to suggest your web page to any person who should get guidance on this topic.

I’d prefer to make use of some with the content on my blog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll provide you with a link on your net blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Aw, this was a really nice post. In concept I wish to put in writing like this moreover – taking time and precise effort to make an excellent article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and on no account appear to get one thing done.

  13. Aniela Says:

    The next time I learn a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I imply, I know it was my choice to learn, but I truly thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you would fix for those who werent too busy in search of attention.
