Sarso Da Saag

If there was one Dish that every Punjabi Home look forward to in winters is Sarso Da Saag with Makki De Roti. If I could give it a english name it would be “Mashed Mustard/Spinach with Spices”. Does not sound good but it is the best thing to have in Winters. Here in Bangkok, I found Mustard Leaves in April, so could not wait to make Sarso Da Saag. Here is the Recipe. Enjoy.
