Sarson Ka Saag (as it is known in Hindi or Sarhon Da Saag, in Punjabi or Sareyan Da Saag in Dogri) is a popular vegetarian dish from the northern region of the Indian subcontinent. It is made from mustard greens (sarson) and spices such as ginger and garlic. It is often served with makki ki roti. Sarson Ka Saag and makki ki roti is considered a special dish in entire North India. It is eaten only in the winter season.
Origins and history
The dish is regarded as the traditional way to prepare saag and is usually served with makki ki roti (unleavened cornbread). It can be topped with either Makkhan (unprocessed white butter or processed yellow butter) or more traditionally with ghee (clarified butter). Some spinach (called palak in Hindi) may be added to enhance colour and thicken the dish, though this may alter the flavor.
