Makke ki Roti and Sarson ka Saag :Anubha's Kitchen

Makke ki roti Sarson ka saag: cornmeal bread & mustard leaves mash

Sarson ka Saag is my favorite during this season when winds are chilly and only thinking of hot makke ki roti and saag can make you warm. Dollops of butter and a cup of masala tea adds to the warmth.

Sarson ka saag is invariably cooked with palak (spinach) , bathua and methi too. The ratio is 4:1:1:1 . I made mine with 2:1 Mustard :Spinach only.

  • Sarson ka saag(Mustard leaves) : 2 bunches
  • Palak saag ( Spinach Leaves ): 1 bunch
  • Garlic :6 no cloves( make paste with ginger )
  • Ginger : 2 inches

  • Onion 1 big finely chopped
  • Butter 20 + 30 gms or as per taste and diet :)
  • Clarified Butter (ghee) 2 tbsp
  • 1/4 tsp Jeera for tadka
  • 1/8 tsp hing for tadka

Method

  1. Clean, wash and cut the leaves of both Mustard and Spinach. Pressure cook together with green chilli and half the quantity of onion.
  2. Once a whistle comes sim the heat and let cook for 20-30 min on low.
  3. After it is done cool and mash with hand blender or food processor .
  4. In a heated Kadai (wok ) add ghee and 20 gms butter. Add jeera and hing as tadka.
  5. Add Onion
  6. Once onion are translucent ( not brown ) add ginger garlic paste .
  7. You want then you can add 1/2 tomato here but i did not.
  8. Once this is all mushy and cooked add Mustard paste to this.
  9. Add salt and cook on high till the water is reduced and desired consistency is achieved.
  10. Serve with Makke ki Roti
