Sarson Saag (Punjab Delicacy)

City life snatches lots of sweet little things from our life and  one such thing is the witnessing beautiful fields of luscious yellow mustard fields.

Its breathtaking to see those beautiful yellow blooms during winter and they tastes as delicious as they look.

In cold winter days its important to retain the heat in your body and Sarson really helps in doing that.

Vasanth had this dish in a restaurant and came home saying it tastes very good.If Vasanth says ‘Yes’ to a green I always cook it -This is my mantra so here’s what I cooked.

Ingredients :

Chopped sarson/mustard leaves 3 cups

Chopped methi/Fenugreek leaves 1/2 cup

Chopped palak/spinach leaves 1/2 cup

1 large  onion finely chopped

4  green chilllies

1 tsp cumin seeds

1/2 tsp Ajwain/Oregano

2 cardamom

2 cloves

1 tsp ginger-garlic paste

1 tsp turmeric

1 tsp coriander powder

salt to taste

3 table spoon ghee

3 tsp butter for garnishing

How I made it: 

1.Pressure cook the chopped greens till they are tender.

2.Blend the greens using food processor

3.Heat 2 tsp oil in a pan and add cumin seeds,ginger garlic paste,chopped green chillies and onion

4.Add ajwain,cardamom,cloves,turmeric and coriander powder.

5. Cook till onion turns translucent

6. Add the blended paste,salt to taste and then 3 table spoon of ghee’

7. Turn off the heat once the ghee starts separating from paste

8 . Best served with Makkai  ki roti.

Makkai ki roti :

2 cups Makkai/Corn meal flour

1/2 cup Wheat flour

1 tsp Ajwain and salt to taste

Make a dough of above mix and make small balls

Take a Ziploc Bag and cut  two sides .

On one end  of ziploc sprinkle lots of wheat flour on plastic sheet and keep the dough ball in middle and cover with other end.

Roll them into roti’s and cook on tawa.

Serve with little bit of butter.

They tend to be little dry but tastes delicious,
