Sarson Ka Saag

Harsh Solanki
Sarson Ka Saag is a traditional Punjabi dish prepared from Fresh Green Saroson Patta (Mustard Leaves) and Spinach (Palak). Sarson Ka Saag is also popularly known as Sarson Da Saag. Sarson Ka Saag is primarily a seasonal dish prepared in winter as mustard leaves are readily available in this season.
Sarson ka Saag is a nutritionally rich food recipe as green mustard leaves and spinach leaves add many essential nutrients and minerals (Iron, Magnesium, zinc, Vitamins and other minerals).
Some people add Bathua leaves (White Goosefoot) with Mustard leaves and do not use spinach, few ingredients may vary as per taste and tradition but here we are using spinach in our recipe.
