  • 1 tbsp Refined oil Prefer peanut oil. But you can use any refined oil of your choice. Preferably not olive oil as it adds an inherent strong aroma.



  • Soak the desiccated coconut in hot water. for 20 minutes.
  • Soak the lentil in water for 20 minutes. The water level should be 1 inch above that of the lentils.
  • Put the Curds into the blender with equal amount of water and blend it well to make buttermilk.

Start Cooking

  • Take the Pumpkin in a pot with water(Should stand 2 inches above the level of the pumpkin) and 1 tea spoon of Turmeric powder.
  • Put the pot on the stove with high flame/heat and let it boil till the pumpkin gets cooked well for around 15 minutes. You can test it by taking a piece of the pumpkin out with a spoon to test it.
  • Once you see the pumpkin is cooked, add the ground Masala and allow it to cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Then reduce the flame/heat till the boil comes down to just a mild simmer. Then add the blended curds(Buttermilk) in and allow it simmer for another 5 minutes. Then turn off the flame/stove.


  • Take 1 table spoon of oils in the Small Pot and put it on a flame till the oil heats up. To test if the oil is hot enough, you can put a seed of the black mustard to see if it sputters. If it sputters, put the rest of the mustard seeds, curry leaves and Asafoetida into the oil, mix with a spoon and pour it onto the what you cooked in the large pot.
  • Your Majjige Huli Is ready. Server it with some steamed rice and Enojy!
