Southekai Thambuli - Udupi Recipe


  • 1/2 Southekai,
  • 1-2 Green Chillies,
  • 1/2 tsp. Cumin/jeera seeds,
  • 3/4 cup Grated Coconut,
  • 1/2 cup curd,
  • Salt as per your taste.
  • 4-5 cups of water


  • 1/2 tsp. Mustard,
  • 2 Sprigs Curry leaves,
  • 1 tsp. Coconut oil.

Remove the skin from southekai and cut into pieces after removing the seeds. Cook with green chilli and a pinch of sugar, in 2 cups of water. When cools down, grind this with coconut in a mixer. Add curd in the last round. Pour in a vessel and garnish. The consistency should be like dosa batter.

Second method:

You can make thambuli with just the soft part, after removing the seeds. No cooking, just grind everything like the earlier recipe and garnish. The hard part can be used for saambaar or majjige huli (ಮಜ್ಜಿಗೆ ಹುಳಿ)/more kuzhambu (மோர் குழம்பு)!
