Sarson ka Saag sabzi With Makki Roti

Makki Ki Roti & Sarson ka Saag

What a lovely combo ! They truly complement each other very well. The recipe is so simple and tastes so great. Sarson is called as Mustard Leaves here in the Philippines and is widely available in Supermarkets. It is know for it's distinct pungent, horse-radish mustardy flavor and is rich in Vitamin A. Because of it's pungent flavor it is usually cooked with milder greens like spinach.

This wonderful punjabi dish is made for Each Other.
