Majjiga Pulusu

Majjiga Pulusu

A Traditional south Indian meal ends with curd. I am a huge fan of Curd. I feel an incomplete meal without curd or buttermilk. This post is a tasty and quick end of meal :), Called as Majjiga pulusu. Butter milk is called majjiga in telugu (my mother tongue). Apart from its taste, buttermilk helps in aiding digestion, prevents vitamin deficiency and brings about a drop in cholesterol. try it out!
