Few days back, when I went to my dear friend R’s house, she made me taste a dish she had prepared for lunch. Though I had heard of Majjige Huli a lot of times, this was the first time I got to taste it. Majjige Huli is a traditional recipe made in Kannada Brahmin households. I liked the taste of it. Couple of days later, while racking my brains as to what to prepare for dinner, this dish came to my mind. Naturally, the next thing I did was to call her up and ask for the recipe. Thankfully I had all the ingredients in stock.
On reading through the recipe, I found that it has some similarity to the Kerala style Pulissery and the North Indian style Kadhi. While Kerala pulissery has grated coconut, Kadhi has besan/Gram flour in it. Majjige Huli has both grated coconut as well as gram as ingredients.
On serving Majjige huli to my boys, they didn’t really figure out that this was a different preparation altogether. They were under the impression that it was Moru Curry, till I pointed out that this was different. With their stamp of approval, yet another recipe goes into my collection.
