I am having one of those days when I want to stay away from the blog as much as possible. I am finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the amount of work and dedication required to keep up with things. I have many recipes in drafts which I could post, but I find it extremely difficult to reply to all the questions through comments/mails. I try my best, but I fall short. I am also finding it difficult to blog hop. I hope I will come out of it soon.
Majjige huLi – buttermilk gravy with vegetables in it, is one very popular Kannada dish. Like any other traditional dishes, there are many ways of making this. This recipe was sent to me by Aruna. It has become a very regular at home these days.

4 green chillies
1 tea spn cumin seeds
3-4 strands corainder leaves(with stems)
1″ piece ginger

1/2 tea spn mustard
