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.

With mustered and spinach leaves if you add a bunch of bathua leaves then Sarson ka saag will get a smooth texture.

This recipe is really very simple and l was looking for a quick simple recipe of sarson ka saag. Once l had a chance of tasting it in the restaurant and it was so delicious that I thought to prepare it. I prepared this dish and everyone relished it. So, l got their cheerful gesture in return. Thanks a lot. I would like to have some more recipes of northern India. Cooking is an art and it should be done with love which I tried after getting this simple method.
