Vegetable Sagu, Vegetable Curry For Rava Idlis

          Vegetable Sagu, the first time I had this with rava idlis was so many years back, of course, back then, I didn't know anything about vegetable sagu, but I just loved it with the rava idlis. It's a simple and easy dish, mixed vegetables are cooked with some freshly ground masala paste and seasoned with ghee. Though we can serve the idlis with regular chutneys, I personally feel that they go very well with this vegetable sagu, and of course we can serve the sagu with rotis, parottas and dosas too..

Need To Have

  • Chopped Green Beans - 1 cup
  • Chopped Carrots - 1 cup
  • Potatoes - 2 medium, chopped
  • Green Peas - 1/2 cup
  • Tomato - 1 medium, chopped
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Ghee - 1 tablespoon
  • Bay Leaf - 1 big
  • Chopped Coriander - 2 tablespoons to garnish
  • Salt to taste

To Grind 

  • Chopped Coriander - 1 cup
  • Coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Poppy Seeds - 1 tablespoon
  • Fennel Seeds - 1 tablespoon
  • Cardamom - 2
  • Cloves - 4
  • Cinnamon - 1" piece
  • Green Chillies - 4 to 5
  • Onion - 1 small, chopped
  • Ginger - 1 teaspoon, chopped


          Cook together the green beans, carrots, potatoes, green peas and tomato along with some salt and water.

          In the meantime, grind together all the ingredients given under ' to grind '.

          Add the ground paste to the cooked vegetables along with turmeric powder and if needed some more salt and water. Mix and cook for 5 to 7 minutes and remove. Heat the ghee, add the bay leaf, once it sizzles add it to the cooked vegetables and garnish with the chopped coriander.

You can use up to 1 cup of grated coconut, but I prefer to keep it to 1/2 cup.
