- Duration: 20 minutes
- Serves: 2 to 4 people
Spice Level: Low
Don’t add fried pakoras but one can add boiled vegetables . The best way of enjoying Majjige Huli is with steamed rice and aralu sandige. Majjige Huli is a vegetable and dal dish cooked in a buttermilk base, so in that sense is similar to the kadhi of Maharashtra and Gujarat. If you do not wish to use a grinder/blender, add in some chopped chillies along with the vegetables and just put them on boil.
