This famous recipe from north India is made with a combination of greens, namely spinach and mustard leaves. Mustard leaves have a unique flavour that is mildly bitter but quite pleasing to the palate. In order to decrease the bitterness, the mustard leaves are first cooked in boiling water with the spinach before being blended and sautéed with flavourful ingredients like tomatoes and onions. A dash of spice powders add more zing to this delicious subzi, making it a treat to the taste buds. Serve this delicious Sarson ka Saag with Makai ki Roti, to make a satiating north Indian meal.

Truly a North Indian in a restaurant style. It''s a little on a spicier side, but that''s how this subzi is suppose to taste. I added the dhania-jeera powder which is optional here, and it tasted fab. The video also has some nice pointers on how to maintain bright green colour of subzi.
