Posted by Veena Karanth at 13:11:00
Bombay sagu is usually served along with Set Dosa and Rava idli. Unlike other saagus , this potato sagu is prepared with less of spices and is very convenient to cook. At some hotels, I have seen this saagu being served along with thatte ( plate ) idlis also.  Here, in this recipe potato is the main ingredient and it is seasoned with few spices. I have no idea as to why it is named Bombay Sagu, but I can assure you that it is extremely taste-worthy.
