Sarson ka saag recipe-

Sarson ka saag is one of the popular dish originated from Punjab, India. It is usually prepared with mustard greens and some spices. It is also an associated national cuisine of India and Pakistan. Sarson ka saag is traditionally eaten with makke ki roti which is a type of Indian bread prepared with corn flour. This is also one of the healthiest curry recipe.

In this recipe I have used sarson, Bhatua and spinach greens to prepare curry, Though spinach may or may not contain in authentic recipe. I have added it enhance the colour and to prepare a thick delicious curry. During winter seasons this dish very popular in Punjab as mustard greens abundantly available there.

Saag is basically a leaf based dish eaten in Indian subcontinents and This healthy delicious sarson ka saag is my all time favourite. Food prepared using seasonal ingredients are always very tasty. You can skip the bathua if it is not available anyway this recipe will work even for sarson and spinach. I have shared each and every process in detail below just go through it and prepare this delicious sarson ka saag.

Serving-

  1. Serve mild hot
  2. you can serve it with makke ki roti as it is traditionally served
