Vegetable Sagu - South Indian Style

I generally bring the required quantity of vegetables. But sometimes I end up buying a little more than required for that day' s menu. So in a box, in my fridge you can always find 10 bean strands, 2 carrots, 1 radish, a bowl of greens etc. And once in a week I make this Sagu, in which I put all of these left over vegetable.Its easy to make, since the vegetable has to be cut to medium length.Like in sambhar, so cutting is also easy. It uses just a tsp of oil, hence  healthy oil.

Vegetables - 4 cups.
Grated coconut-1/2 cup, substitute with 1 mid sized onion.
Green chillies-2
Fried gram-3 tbs
Poppy seeds-2tsp
Coriander leaves - few (optional)

Hing- a pinch
Curry  leaves
Oil -1 tsp
  • Cut the vegetables, and boil them until they are tender.
  • Grind, coconut, chillies, coriander leaves, fried grams,poppy seeds in a mixer  to form a fine paste
  • Drain the water from the vegetables and keep aside the water.
  • Mix the grated paste, to the vegetable and add the water , to  form  a gravy like consistency.
  • Add salt and bring it to boil.
  • Season with mustard , curry leaves and hing.
