Sagu or Mixed Vegetable Sagu, almost always pronounced in a rush as ‘sagg’ is one of the most ubiquitous accompaniments in Karnataka. It is relished with dosas , rava idlis , puris and chapatis too!

This richly-flavoured vegetable dish is part of their daily menu. Here, a large and vibrant assortment of veggies is cooked with a traditional tempering and flavoured with a special Sagu masala that is made of dry-roasted urad dal and spices.

You can make a batch of this dry spice mix and keep it handy, to quickly conjure up a bowl of Sagu any day you wish to. You will love the appetizing aroma and flavour of this dish, which is also conveniently easy to prepare.

You can also try your hand at other South Indian recipes like the South Indian Stir Fry Rice or Masala Vadas .
