Majjiga Pulusu | Mor Kuzhambu

Majjiga Pulusu

Long Long back say 5 yrs ago I was gearing up in moving to Korea with my husband. In the process of getting a visa & all I stayed back in India for couple of months. On one of his trips my husband asked me to learn making " Majjiga Pulusu " stressing on that he likes it a lot. Oh I just can't believe how many times I flopped (in his view). At last I managed to satisfy his taste buds with my recipe that's a different story.    
I have tasted various recipes of the same dish.My mom makes as I mentioned below with added potato cubes to it (which I ignored). But my MIL's version is quite interesting she adds steamed dal dumplings to it. I will try to post it here some time. I ignored veggies as I added lots of coconut to the dish. Coconut gives richness & flavor to this dish.
