Mixed Veg Saagu

Sometimes tasty dishes don’t need lot of masala. Simpler versions are better. I used to do mix veg saagu with lot of spices like coriander, jeera etc. I always found the masala to be overwhelming, but still continued as that was the only way I knew. Many mix-veg saagu recipes out there are also similar to what I do.. When I was browsing for a different version of mix veg saagu, I came across this recipe which looked much simpler on the masala.  The taste came out good too. It’s also richer as it has cashews. 

Do try!

Set Dose/Set Dosa

All these days I was using my regular dosa batter, pour it thick, and make set dose. It would come out good, but it didn’t have that restaurant taste. Then I came across this interesting recipe with different proportion of urad dal and rice. The dosa came out very soft, fluffy and airy. The taste was also very close to the restaurant ones.   

The only catch is (as the blogger points out), dosa batter becomes thin as it ferments. Then you’ll need to adjust by adding rice flour. Hence the batter should be ground thick. 

Enjoy set dose with some veg kurma(my next post) and chutney!
