SARSON KA SAAG (MUSTARD GREENS CURRY)

This dish is staple to Punjab (North India) and every Dhaba (roadside inn) will have this dish on their menu! Always had with Makki Di Roti (corn meal flat bread) this curry tastes best if slow cooked. The longer it is cooked the tastier the end result.

We went to a new Indian Grocery store today and it was the first time I found Mustard Leaves. I was so excited and could not resist buying it, even though the only Sarson Ka Saag that I have eaten was with cousins at Urban Tadka in Bombay, have never tried making it at home. With so many recipes available on the net, I did not hesitate to buy the Sarson (mustard leaves). After going through at least 15 to 20 recipes, I finally zeroed in on the one by Vahchef Sanjay Thumma.
