Majjige huli(Curd based South Indian Curry)

I cannot believe I have no new recipe lined up to post this month... this has never happened before! You see, I make it a point to put at least 2 recipes every month. I always am prepared knowing what I would be posting next... but not this month! 

I had to dig through old photos to see if I had any old pics that I might’ve missed. Thankfully, I found Majjige Huli ... I had not put this one up before because I was not too happy with the picture. I was waiting for my husband to retake a good one (btw, this is a good opportunity to tell everybody that my husband takes all the pictures for me:) )... 
But then every time I made it, I went into “should I post this or not” discussion in my head, and never came to a decision... Story of my life!!

Now since I have nothing on hand, I decided to put this one up any way... 

Majjige huli is my all time favorite. My mom didn’t know how to make this. I always craved for this and I would never ever miss a chance to devour it at weddings and other functions. 
After I started cooking, however, I learnt this from my cousin Kshama and have been making it regularly ever since. 

The recipe is easy peasy. You just need to get the consistency of the gravy right.. My suggestion would be to make thicker version first and then add water to thin it down as much as needed.

Bhagavanta enappa nin leele!! ashtami ge tindi maadisi, ganeshana habbakke post maadista idyalappa!!

I made this for ashtami but posting this for Ganeshana Habba.. 

My aunt Anasuya Hande, is a very skilled cook and she has hand written a recipe book for amateurs like me in the family, who were on the brink of getting married, but didn’t have any “gandha” of cooking(no clue types). 
I treat that book like Bhagavad Gita. 

Anyways, for Krishna Ashtami, I decided to make her nippattu for the very first time. It came out just perfect!! Thanks atte, for the detailed recipe!!! 

The recipe is very easy and doesn’t take a lot of time. Within half an hour I could make 35 medium sized nippattus. Not bad, right?! 

Also Ganesha habba marks the anniversary of my blog! Happy Birthday blog!! 

Do try!
