For the Spice Paste:

  • 3~4 Green Chilies, chopped
  • 1 tbsp Fried gram (Dalia, putnalapappu) or Cashews
  • ¼ tsp Black Peppercorns
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 3 tsp Coriander seeds
  • 1" Cinnamon stick
  • 2~3 Cloves
  • ¼ cup Fresh grated coconut (thaw, if frozen)

For Sagu:

  • 2 tbsp Ghee or Canola Oil
  • 1 tsp Mustard seeds
  • 1 Dry Red Chili, halved
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • ½ tsp Hing or Asafoetida powder
  • 8~10 curry leaves
  • 2~3 cups Chopped Mixed Veggies*
  • 1 Medium Potato, peeled and chopped
  • ½ tsp Turmweic powder
  • To taste salt
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro, chopped


  • Grind the ingredients for the 'Spice paste' until smooth using just enough water. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, heat ghee/ oil and add mustard seeds, red chili, urad dal, hing and curry leaves. Once the seeds start to splutter, add the veggies, turmeric and salt.
  • Saute for couple of minutes, then add 1 cup of water. Cook till the veggies are tender, about 8~10 minutes.
  • Add the spice paste and mix well. Add more water if the curry seems too dry. Simmer for a couple of minutes.
  • Garnish with chopped cilantro and serve hot with roti, poori or rice.


  • I used frozen mixed veggies which has green beans, carrot, green peas and corn. Feel free to use cabbage, chayote squash etc.
