Majjige huli 
is a traditional mildly spice gravy recipe from the Karnataka region. It has a sour and savory flavor and tastes delicious with roti, chapathi, phulkas, and hot steamed rice. It is made during festivals, special occasions and also served as a part of the Karnataka thali meal.

This majjige saaru is primarily prepared with sour curd, freshly ground coconut paste, green chilies, and other spices. Water-based vegetables like Southekai/Bengaluru cucumber, yam, kumbalakai/ash gourd/winter melon, white pumpkin, brinjal, tindora, or kovakai, okra/bendekai, chayote squash, snake guard, sorekai/bottle guard can be added to the buttermilk curry.

However, you can make plain majjige huli as well, that is, without adding any vegetables. It is similar to the North Indian Kadhi recipe. I prefer to have buttermilk curry with rice; it is usually served after sambar rice and rasam rice. It is
 light on the stomach, easy and quick to make within 30 mins.

This buttermilk curry is called by different names in the Southern part of India. Majjige huli in Kannada, majjiga pulusu in Telugu, moru curry in Malayalam, mor kuzhambu in Tamil. In the Kannada language, majjige denotes buttermilk, huli indicates tangy gravy, and mosaru means curd.
