Majjiga Pulusu Recipe | Andhra Majjiga Charu | Buttermilk Rasam with step-by-step photo and video recipe. Rasam recipes are one of the essential side dish recipes for many South Indian households. It is generally made with a combination of spices in a lentil-based base or with a tomato base. Yet it can be made in other ways too and one such simple and easy rasam recipe is the Majjiga Pulusu or buttermilk rasam.

I am not a huge fan of rasam recipes and I am more of sambar or dal recipes. The main reason is the consistency of the rasam. For instance, the pepper garlic rasam has a watery consistency and I feel it does not mix with rice. Whereas if you compare it with any lentil-based sambar or coconut-based sambar which has a medium consistency. It gels well with rice. Having said that, it is a different scenario for the Majjiga Pulusu recipe. You use buttermilk which generally has a better thickness. Moreover, it hardly takes a couple of minutes to make it as it does not need to pressure cook or boil. Hence whenever you feel lethargic about making something fancy, you can opt for this recipe.

Furthermore, some more tips, suggestions, and variations for a perfect and tasty Majjiga Pulusu recipe. Firstly, as I mentioned the buttermilk rasam tastes good when it is sour. It would end up with a spicy and sour rasam recipe. Secondly, if your yogurt is not sour, you should be good at adding a teaspoon of lemon juice to balance the taste. Also, to make the buttermilk sour you can keep it in a warm place or even under the sun. Lastly, you can easily make and keep it in a fridge for 2-3 days. In addition, you can also add more finely chopped veggies to make it more tasty and flavourful.
