Sarson Ka Saag

Sarson Ka Saag

Sarson Da saag is a popular vegetable dish in Punjab of India made from Mustard leaves(sarson) and spices. However, it is also popular in other neighboring states of Haryana and Rajasthan.

It is traditionally served with makki ki roti which means corn bread. It can be topped with either butter or topped with ghee. Spinach can be added to brighten gravy color and thickening the dish, this would alter the taste though.
