Mixed Vegetable Sagu/korma/kurma, popular by different names….
This vegetable saagu /korma/kurma is a thick,aromatic, popular South Indian spiced curry or side dish ususlly clubbed with parotta, poori, chapathi ,rawa idli, dosas, idiyapaam, appam, or even with gheerice….Its a versatile side dish…
Its a popular side dish in almost all resturants/hotels in Karnataka…
This is coconut based thick creamy gravy with mild blend of spices in it along with lots of vegetables in it…..
I personally like this with pooris or parota a good combination I can say…
Here i have blanched vegetables in a container, you can even pressure cook this for 2 whistles to save time…
This mildly spiced aromatic gravy is a real treat and if you eat one time you will fall in love with this one….
