Seemebadanekai Majjige Huli
This one is a signature dish in every home of Dakshina Kannada. Back home, this was made on festival days or on any special occasions along with many other delicacies. Majjige is Buttermilk in Kannada. Majjige Huli is a buttermilk and coconut based gravy with vegetables. The vegetables used in it can be Ladies finger, Chayote Squash, Ash gourd, Tindora etc. I have used Seemebadanekai aka Chayote Squash here. More about this veggie can be found here.

There are many variations to this dish. Some people I know add Jeera to give it an added flavor (Just like the Avial). My mom made it without Jeera, the simplest curry I can think of. Apart from the simplicity, I love the cooling effect it has on the body.
