SIMPLY VEG KOFTA CURRY/SAGU KOFTA CURRY

We always make sagu using many vegetables and most of them would be green vegetables. So this time when I was making Palak  Peas sagu, It just did strike my mind that what if we add vegetable Koftas into that Palak Peas gravy/sagu ! So immediately I converted my thought into a dish and the result was awesome…. and named it as simply veg Kofta curry/sagu Kofta curry. This recipe uses varieties of vegetables, Koftas which are steamed and few spices along with the goodness of Palak/Methi. I have used powdered beaten rice (red rice flakes powder) for the binding purpose, you can also use breadcrumbs or Oats. Overall it’s a kind of easy, simple, healthy, tasty recipe which goes well with roti, chapati, phulka and rice as well.

You can change the spices/masalas & their measurements for sagu/gravy according to your method of making sagu

Please add Koftas into the gravy just before serving, else it absorbs the water in the gravy/sagu and becomes very thick
