Today I’m going to share exclusively my method of making sagu, that too using seeme badanekayi/chou-chou/Chayote. This particular sagu is with the goodness of almonds and poppy seeds, I have not used any spices which smell pungent. We… all the four of us at home, like this particular flavor and taste of sagu.

Chayote …seeme badanekayi in kannada is an edible plant belonging to the gourd family along with melons, cucumbers and squash, eaten in similar way to the summer squash, cucumbers and melons. Chayote was one of the many foods introduced to Europe by early explorers, who brought back a wide assortment of botanical samples. The chayote fruit is used in mostly cooked forms, it is generally lightly cooked to retain the crispy consistency. Chayote is a good source of Vitamin C. It is available in plenty in most of the southern parts of India. We make huli (sambar), Palya (subji), Kootu, rice rotti, wheat flour rotti and sagu etc using this vegetable. We also make chutney using its peel. It is not familiar to the people of Northern part of India, but luckily we get this vegetable in Delhi and Gurgaon. This is one of my personal favourite vegetable. So today I’m going to share the recipe of Seeme badanekayi sagu, which is again with different taste and flavor from other types of sagu. Somehow my elder son doesn’t like the cinnamon & cloves flavor & taste in the sagu, so I make this particular sagu, in my own method using below listed set of ingredients for masala.
