This is a Karnataka’s popular recipe that is usually served with dosa, idli, poori, chapathi. Vegetable saagu is a vegetable gravy curry  in green masala. This is simple to make. Here is my version of making this curry.

Serves – 2
Preparation time – 10 mins
Cooking time – 20 mins
Ingredients :

  • Potato  (chopped) – 1/2 cup
  • Carrot (chopped) – 1/8 cup
  • Capsicum (chopped) – 1/2 cup
  • Cauliflower (florets) – 1 cups
  • Ghee (clarified butter) – 1 Tbsp
  • Mustard Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Cilantro – 1 Tbsp
  • Green chillies – to taste
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece
  • Fresh Coconut – 2 Tbsp
  • Poppy Seeds – 1 Tbsp
  • Coriander Seeds – 1 tsp
  • Cinnamon – 1 small piece
  • Cloves – 2 no
  • Dalia –  2 Tbsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Salt – to taste
  • Water – 1 cup
  • Asafoetida (hing) – pinch

Procedure :

First lets prepare the masala, in a pan , add cinnamon, cloves, coriander seeds and fry on on low heat stirring them continuosly for 2 mins, then fry poppy seeds till they are golden, fry green chillies, ginger, coconut, cilantro, curry leaves each for 30 secs adding one after other. Take care not to burn any of them. Finally add dalia, turmeric powder and turn off the heat.

Allow them to cool, mean while lets prepare the seasoning. Into a pressure cooker pan, add ghee, heat it up then add mustard seeds, fry for 10 secs, then add cumin seeds, hing, onion and cook for 3 mins

Meanwhile when the onion is getting done make a fine powder out of the masala ingredients, then add water and make a fine paste, this way you get a smooth and silky paste which yields silky sauce for the curry.

Add the paste to the cooker along with the onion and seasoning, then add in all the vegetables, salt and water. Cover to cook until you listen just 1 whistle. So that all the vegetable will be cooked perfectly. Allow to cool the pressure cooker by itself. Then aerve it with chapathi, roti, phulka, idli, dosa or anything you like.
