Udupi Majjige Huli

Udupi Majjige Huli is called Kodakyana in Tulu. This tastes entirely different from the Bangalore Mysore style Majjige Huli. This is yogurt and coconut based sambar/ curry. Mild and simple in taste. Goes well with steamed rice, Kadubu and Ottu Shavige. Other vegetables which can be used to make this dish are okra, ash gourd (boodu Kumbalkai), Jeegujje. The curd should be a little sour. Do not boil after the curd is added.
