Menthi Majjiga/Fenugreek yoghurt

With Christmas and New Year round the corner, it is party and holiday time. Time to celebrate with delicious treats and yummy feasts. It is also the time when most of us suffer with an upset stomach and fall sick. Menthi majjiga is the medicine. While fenugreek is a popular digestive, curds act as a coolant to the otherwise burning poor stomach.

Thank you Vasantha Aunty (Neeharika’s mom in law) for the superb solution.

Preparation time: 10 mins

Serves: 2


Yoghurt (Curds/Majjiga/Majjige) 1 cup

Onion 1
Green chilly 1
Chopped coriander 1 tbsp

Curry leaves 4-5

Refined cooking oil 1 tsp

Red chilly 1

Mustard seeds (Rai/Aavalu) ½ tsp

Fenugreek seeds (Methi seeds/Menthulu) ½ tsp

Carom seeds (Ajwain/Vaamu) ½ tsp

Pinch of turmeric (Haldi/Pasupu)

Pinch of Asafoetida (Hing/Inguva)
Salt to taste


Beat thick curds to buttermilk consistency. It should feel creamy and milky. Add salt and turmeric and set aside for around 5-8 mins.

Finely chop the onion, coriander, curry leaves and green chilly.

Heat oil in a pan. Add the onions and fry until golden brown.

Heat oil in the pan, add mustard seeds and as they pop, add the red chilly, fenugreek seeds, carom seeds and a pinch of asafoetida.

Add to the beaten curds, the fried onion, and chopped coriander, curry leaves, green chillies (not if serving to children) and the seasoning and beat well.

Menthi majjiga can be served refrigerated or as is. Serve with light khichdi or any flavored rice as a raitha or with plain rice mixed with any south Indian dal or just sip it through. Enjoy the parties and menthi majjiga too.
