Sarson Ka Saag is a healthy curry which is normally made during the winter season in Northern parts of India specially Punjab. In English, Sarson Ka Saag is known as mustard greens. Traditionally this dish is served with makki di roti which means maize flour flat bread and a blob of butter. This is a famous meal combo in Punjab and is very healthy too. The taste of mustard greens is bit bitter, hence you should cook it with other greens like spinach or palak. Add onion, garlic and tomato paste along with other spices to enhance the flavor.
I first time had this dish in a Gurudwara and had loved the dish. I never knew that we get these mustard greens in Bangalore too. There is a vegetable vendor who goes in the streets in my layout everyday screaming ‘soppu’. Soppu means vegetables. My hubby was leaving for office and this guy told my hubby that he has something special to sell and handed over 4 bunches of mustard greens. Hubby immediately brought it home and told me to cook Punjab’s special Sarson Ka Saag.
There is a Punjabi family in my apartment. I called aunty and got the recipe to cook Sarson Ka Saag. These mustard greens are highly nutritious. They are full of antioxidants, high in fibre, boosts immune system and helps lower cholesterol. Check Rawalpindi Style Chole Recipe.
