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.

Never Ever put turmeric (Haldi) in your greens be it be sarson or spinach or methi.Reason check Ayurveda Also dont cook in aluminium pots. Saag should be cooked in Desi Ghee for real punjabi taste topped up with Makhan. Refined oil is not good, if you have to use oil use filtered (kachi ghani ka tel) oil

I tried this recipe with Pala, sarson, Bathua and a small bunch methi... It came out nice but I thought it tasted nicer when I added a dash of lemon to it... Thank you for the quick recipe.

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