Baby corn majjiga pulusu/Baby corn majjige huli/Baby corn Khadi

Baby corns are one of those Chinese vegetables that have become a regular in Indian homes. Baby corn majjiga pulusu is the south Indian way of relishing it with a creamy yoghurt base.

Preparation time: 30-45 mins

Serves: 4


Baby corns 12
Bengal gram (senagabedalu/Chana dal) 2 tbsp
Green chilly 1
Coriander 2 strands
Ginger 1 tsp
Grated coconut 2 tsp
Buttermilk 1 ladle
Refined cooking oil 2 tsp
Mustard seeds (Aavalu/Rai) 1 tsp
Fenugreek seeds (Menthulu/Methi) seeds 1/4th tsp
Red chilli 1
Curry leaves 4-5
Pinch of Asafoetida (Inguva/Hing)
Pinch of turmeric (Pasupu/Haldi)
Salt to taste


Cut the baby corns into half a finger length pieces.

Soak the Bengal gram for around half an hour.

Grind the Bengal gram, green chilly, coriander, ginger, pinch of asafoetida, pinch of turmeric, pinch of salt and grated coconut into a paste.

Add salt to taste to the baby corns, water as required and pressure-cook up to 3-4 whistles.

Pour the cooked baby corns along with water if any into a cooking pot/vessel. Add water to around ½ to 3/4th the cooking pot/vessel. Add a pinch of salt and leave to boil.

When the water boils, add the Bengal gram paste previously prepared and stir. Keep stirring to one boil.

Add buttermilk and stir. Leave for 2 mins and switch the stove off. If using thick yoghurt, beat well and add.

Heat oil in a kadai/pan and add the red chilli and mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds splutter, add curry leaves and fenugreek seeds. Season the majjiga pulusu with this tempering.

Baby corn majjiga pulusu is a rice supplement but if boiled and cooked to thick gravy, it can make a good Indian bread supplement too. Carrot dal and baby corn majjiga pulusu make a great combo.

A yummy way to cool the system this summer.

Hi, is it possible to put more labels for the recipes? For example, here you can put kadi, baby corn, yogurt, summer etc.

This way I can see all yogurt recipes, all baby corn recipes and so on ... thanks!

Thank you for pointing it out Hari. We have an issue that the moment we add a tag, a new category pops up and we prefer maintaining minimum categories. We have a banner on top that says 'yogurt yummies' for now. Everytime time we write a recipe,a related banner is put up and if you click on the banner, you get to see the list of related recipes. We however understand your concern and will look for a solution. Also please let us know if there is any other way, other than tags to list up the recipes ingredient wise, season wise etc.
