This is the south Indian version of potato sagu and almost the same set of ingredients are used to make Aloo – tamatar subji here in north India. Potato sagu is the best combination with any kind of set dosa/dosay, ie…be it rice or ragi. Today I’m not going to write any details but straight away going to write the recipe of sagu.
