Vegetable Sagu
Vegetable sagu is a side dish for roti, Poori and dosa. It is a South Indian recipe originally from Karnataka state. Coconut, green chillies and pepper corns are the main ingredients which give spiciness to the curry. My mother-in-law love to make it with only one vegetable that is Bottle Gourd or Lauki. It is a no onion no garlic curry. It is for those who do not eat onion or garlic on some particular days.
She taught me this version, but I have it changed. I have added all other veggies, onions and some garlic. When I was surfing in the net I come across this recipe, where in it was give as taught to me by my MIL. After reading this recipe I also stopped adding garlic and made it as is told my by MIL.
