Mixed vegetable saagu is one of the most popular dish from south India. Vegetables like Carrot , beans , Potato , green peas and Knol Knol are used for making Saagu . Spices are blend along with fresh coconut , green chillies and fresh coriander leaves . This saagu is spicy and also has a mild sweet tone from cashews and Saunf / fennel seeds. Taste and methods of Saagu preparation is very similar to vegetable korma .

Mixed Vegetable Saagu goes well with poori, rava idli, rava dosa , set dosa and also with steamed rice. If you have ever visited Darshini’s of Bangalore ,then you’ll be definitely knowing about Saagu . I serve this along with Poori , Rava Idli or Set Dosa . It tastes really good ,also this measurements are perfect and fool proof recipe . Any beginner can do it easily without messing up with taste.
You can prepare Mixed Vegetable Saagu for lunch during family/friends gatherings . Serve this to family and be prepared to get accolades from your loved ones. If you are looking for any South Indian Delicacy for gatherings ,I personally suggest you to try Badanekayi Ennegayi | Stuffed Baingan with either Jowar Roti , Akki Roti or Bili Holige| Rice flour stuffed Paratha
