Massoppu or masoppu saaru and ragi mudde is a very popular combination in southern parts of Karnataka. Massoppu saaru is a gravy prepared using mashed greens and toor dal. Ragi mudde or ragi ball is a soft ball prepared using finger millet flour. This popular combination is consumed as a wholesome meal. I have already posted upsaaru recipe, which is another gravy goes very well with ragi mudde. Also there is another popular and tasty gravy called bassaru, which is also served with ragi mudde. Soon I will share Bassaru recipe as well.
I learnt this massoppu saaru recipe from my aunt, who is basically from tumkur and lives in Bengaluru. And ragi mudde recipe is from my friend sushma, who lives in Mysore.
In Kannada language "Massoppu" derived from "Masida soppu", which translates to mashed greens. And "saaru" refers to sambar or gravy. Massoppu saaru is generally prepared using mixed green leaves like palak leaves, fenugreek leaves, dill leaves and amaranthus leaves. But you can prepare it using any combination of leaves depending on the availability and the taste. I have used palak and amaranthus leaves. Some times I prepare it using palak leaves alone and that also tastes good.
This massoppu or masoppu saaru recipe is posted along with ragi mudde or ragi ball recipe. So read, try and enjoy this Massoppu saaru and Ragi mudde.
