Majjiga pulusu made of buttermilk and bottle gourd and tomato goes very well as a side dish .
I strongly feel it bring very good taste to Khichdi .


Buttermilk - 1/2 l

Chana dal / besan - 1 cup

Bottle Gourd pieces - 1 cup

Tomato pieces - 1/2 cup

Curry leaves - 1/2 bunch

Coriander leaves - 1/2 bunch

Oil - 1 tbsp

Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

Cumin seeds - 1 tsp

Fenugreek seeds - 1 tsp

Redchilly powder - 1 tsp

Asfoetida - 1/2 tsp

Turmeric - a pinch of it

Ginger pieces - 1/2 tsp

Water - 1 cup


In a container take butter milk and add 1 cup of well mixed chanadal in water paste and beat well to form a nice mixture of besan and buttermilk also add a pinch of turmeric to this.

Now heat oil in a pan and put tadka or popu along with asfoetida and ginger pieces.

Microwave cook vegetables for 5 min. Add these vegetables to the popu and mix well .

Now add the buttermilk little and let it come to a boil. Meanwhile add salt , curry leaves , and red chilly powder .

Keep adding the buttermilk and bring it to boil , add coriander . Serve hot with Khichdi ….
