Majjiga Pulusu - vegetables cooked in buttermilk

There are numerous ways to prepare Majjiga Pulusu, our Andhra version of Kadhi, a buttermilk based stew. This pale yellow colored stew calls for vegetables cooked in a delectable combination of fresh coconut-green chillis paste and well beaten sour curd. Vegetables like okra, bottle gourd and drumsticks are usually used to prepare this sweet-sour flavored sauce with a tinge of spice that tickles your taste buds, though you could also use sweet potatoes, tomatoes, greens and potatoes.

Vegetables - Majjiga Charu

You can tweak this recipe, giving it a herby flavor by adding fresh coriander leaves to the coconut-green chilli paste. You can omit asafoetida and add a crushed garlic in the tempering. Try to limit to two to three varieties of vegetables and not more and use slightly sour curd. Fresh, warm and comforting, a delicious stew.
