Wash sambar cucumber , scrape off skin ( optional ) , cut them vertically , de seed them and cut into small thin bite sized pieces.
Add salt , 1-2 green chillies and cook the cucumber for about 1-2 whistles in a cooker. Alternatively you can microwave or cook in open pot too. But don’t overcook and make it mushy. It should be about 75 % cooked.
Meanwhile grind coconut, soaked rice, 3-4 green chillies and salt to a very very smooth paste adding little water . Grinding very smooth is the key requirement.
Once the veggies are cooked, add ground Masala , Sour Buttermilk, ( Can also use whisked sour curd ) and mix well. Let masala and butter milk blend well.
Add water to get the desired consistency. Add few Curry leaves, simmer and bring to boil. Don’t over boil . A minute or two boiling is enough. Switch off the flame .
Prepare a tempering. Heat Oil , preferably Coconut oil . Once oil is hot add Mustard, Methi . Once they splutter add Sun dried chilli or red Chilli . Let it get crisp .Pour over majjige huli. Cover and let it sit for 15-20 mins before serving .
Enjoy with Steamed rice / kadubu .
