Majjige

A glass of majjige or chaas is what one needs in sweltering heat. It is like a lifeline to the parched throat. The coolness of watery majjige is very good for the gut and has a cooling effect on your body. Very simple to make, all it takes is a little set plain curd/yogurt and little salt. You can add chopped coriander and a little tadka for some extra flavour.
Majjige also aids in digestion and is made throughout India and called by different names. It is usually given as an after meal drink or served for festivals like Ram Navami. Curd/yogurt is beaten/churned till it turns even and then lot of water is added so it becomes watery. This is then chilled till it is served or you can serve majjige by adding ice cubes in them.

Always ensure to have fresh yogurt, not sour and free from cream or the curd skin on top. Then you will get nice majjige that you can gulp down and trust me you cannot stop with 1 small glass. Try more Ram Navami recipes from FOI like kosambri, bellada panaka, madike kaalu usli etc.
