From past couple of months, I am not able to update my blog regularly. That's why, some of the recipe picks I clicked long back are still pending with me. Today I was just glancing at them and got inspired to write this recipe!
Marige Gojju is one of the traditional recipes of Havyakas. The name Marige Gojju is because of a special kind of vessel called as 'Marige' which was used to prepare this recipe. Marige means a wooden vessel which was used to mash and powder the ingredients for this Gojju. These days, nobody is using this kind of vessel in their kitchens. But we can see this 'Marige' in some houses of Malnad.
Here is the recipe of Marige Gojju which I learnt from mom. Try and taste this Gojju for your lunch or dinner..

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 4

Cooking oil - 2 1/2 tsp
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
5 - 6 dry red chillies 
Sesame seeds - 1/2 tsp
Pinch of asafoetida
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Thick curd - 1 to 1 1/4 cup

Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan. Add dry red chillies, urad dal, mustard seeds, asafoetida and sesame seeds and roast them nicely.
Add salt to taste before switching off the flame and allow the mixture to become cool.
Now, mash and powder the whole mixture with the help of a ladle. Make the powder as fine as possible. Small grinding stone may ease your work.
Add curd to this mixture and mix it well. That's all, tasty Marige Gojju is ready to serve!

Finally, I want to make one more addition to this recipe. When I told my Grandma that I wrote this recipe, she asked me what all the ingredients used. After knowing the ingredients which I normally use, she told that adding of 1/2 tsp of crushed garlic to the seasoning will enhance the taste of Gojju! Thanks a lot my dear Ajji for this nice tip :)
If you love the flavor of garlic, try adding crushed garlic to this recipe sometime.

  • Mixie is not recommendable for powdering the ingredients here. Because, mashing the ingredients will enhance the taste of this Gojju.
