Sajjige is very famous in hotels of south Karnataka cities like Mysore, Bangalore and Shimoga while its also known as sheera in North part of Karnataka. Sooji is used to make kesari baath as well. But this sajjige is not kesari baath, both are very much different. Sajjige is prepared on Sankashti in Ganesha festival, on other festivals as sacred sweet. This is served with upma in hotels and condiments eat out places.
You can try sajjige and fruit combo. I tried banana sajjige and I liked it. Hope you also like this. Try it and share your experience.
