ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ ಮಜ್ಜಿಗೆ ಹುಳಿ – Winter Melon Majjige Huli

I was surprised to see that I hadn’t posted my most favorite dish ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ ಮಜ್ಜಿಗೆ ಹುಳಿ  – Winter Melon Majjige Huli. Yesterday, when we went to H-Mart we brought ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ Winter Melon, ಸಿಹಿ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ Sweet pumpkin and many more Indian vegetables. My Husband wanted to eat ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ ಮಜ್ಜಿಗೆ ಹುಳಿ  – Winter Melon Majjige Huli, so here comes the recipe for the same.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ or Winter Melon washed, peeled and chopped into equal size
  • 1 cup Yogurt – ಮೊಸರು
  • 8-10 green chillies ( Mine was quite spicy, use less if you don’t eat that spicy)
  • 1 tsp Jeera
  • 2 tsp coriander seeds
  • 4 tsp fresh coconut or dry coconut
  • 4 tsp Channa dal soaked in water
  • 1 inch fresh Ginger coriander leaves
  • 5-6 springs fresh
  • For seasoning – Oil, Mustard seeds, jeera, hing, turmeric
  • Salt to taste

Method:

  1. Cook ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ or Winter Melon either on your stove top or in a microwave
  2. Grind together into a smooth paste – Coconut, green chillies, Jeera, corainder seeds, Channa dal, coriander leaves, and ginger majjige-huil-ingre
  3. Beat the yogurt so it is smooth
  4. Make the seasoning and now add  ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ or Winter Melon.
  5. When the  ಬೂದ ಕುಂಬಳಕಾಯಿ or Winter Melon is cooked, add the ground mixture
  6. Let it boil for 3-4 minutes. Now add beaten yogurt and salt to tastemajjige-huli
  7. Serve with Rice.

  1. I love majjige huli. I use almost the same recipe, but don’t use coriander seeds…
    I use Trader joes unsweetned rice milk or cashew paste instead of yogurt, and vegan Majjige Huli is awesome!

    Thanks again for the traditional recipe from Mysore area.

    Meera, cashew paste doesn’t make majjige huli sweet. You should try it some time!

    Just soak 10 to 12 cashews in hot water. After 10 to 15 minutes grind it along with some water. Use this”cashew milk” .

      Kum, I have used Almond milk in sweet dishes. However, not used cashew. Will try in some sweet dishes. Not in Majjige Huli. Where do you get the sour flavor in Almond paste?

    Meera, I love to use homemade almond milk. To get 1 cup of almond milk, I grind quarter cup of almonds with liitle water, and then mix this with 1 cup of water…
    Shavige payasa with homemade almond milk is really yummy!

    Now, about the Majjige huli.The masala paste when mixed with almond or cashew milk gives great taste. There is sour flavor…

    Do you do majjige huli with okra also?

  4. You can try with hurigadale also instead of using channadal. It has a different taste
