Long back I posted spicy dhal which I used a spice paste for making it. As I told the same spice paste is used in three different dishes which I make. This is second one potato spicy sagu which is spicy and very well goes with Rice Roti, Poori and Chapathi too. This is so yummy that you surely love it. Usually we make three kinds of side dish for this Rice Roti which is perfect combo..

1. Urad dhal chutney
2. Gravy made out of Mochia(Avarekallu)Pithigipappu pulusu or Peas which is so tasty
3. Potato spicy sagu

Will post the second one soon. Today I am posting the potato spicy sagu. Here goes the recipe.... Please have a look at the spice paste in this SPICY DHAL

Ingredients for Potato Sagu :

Potatoes - medium size 4 boiled and mashed
Turmeric - 1 tsp
Mustard - 1 tsp

Curry leaves few Spice paste made out of given measurement Salt Oil

Method :

1. Heat oil in the pan add the mustard seeds and curry leaves once spluttered.
2. Add the mashed potato and the paste add some water.
3. Add salt and let it boil for some time.

4. Serve hot with roti. Fat free side dish is ready to serve.

Ingredients for Rice Roti :

Rice flour - 1 cup
All purpose flour - 1 handful(optional)

Water - 1 1/4 cup
Salt - little
Ghee - 1 tsp
All purpose flour extra for dusting while rolling


1.Heat the water in a kadai or heavy bottom vessel adding some salt to it.
2.When it boils, simmer the flame add the rice flour and mix quickly. Close and keep aside for 5 minutes.
3.Then knead it to a smooth dough by adding little warm water(if needed) by applying oil in your hands.

4.Now make small balls with the dough equally it can be to the 3/4th size of normal chappathi balls now press it using the chappathi maker using the greased plastic sheets by keeping the ball in the middle. If u do not have the maker just roll using usual chapathi dusted with all purpose flour.
5. Put them in hot skillet roast both sides add 1/2 tsp of oil.

Note :

If your making for kids you can add ghee while roasting.

Serve with any three of the side dish you made.
Serve this roti hot hot otherwise it becomes soggy and chewy.
