sarson / mustard leaves
palak / spinach
6 - 10
red chilli powder
Cleaning & Prepping Green leaves
Rinse all greens thoroughly.
Then keep it in a vessel of water and leave for 5 - 7minutes.
This will help the dirt to settle down at the bottom of the vessel.
Remove greens from water & wash all the leaves thoroughly 2 - 3 times. Then chop it finely.
Once the leaves are completely clean, chop them finely.
You can take the help of a food processor to fasten the process.
But make sure these are finely chopped as we are not pureeing the leaves after cooking.
Cooking of Saag in Pressure Cooker
Heat oil in a pressure cooker.
Add cumin seeds and let it crackle.
Add chopped garlic and chopped onion and saute till translucent.
Then add all dry spices mentioned in the list above and mix well. To avoid burning of spices, add little water to it.
Season with salt.
Add washed chopped green leaves. Add 1 cup water and close lid of the cooker.
Cook for 2 whistles. Then turn off gas and wait till pressure released.
Once lid opens turn on the gas and cook on low flame.
At this point, add roasted gram flour or cornflour. Mix well using a ladle.
Simmer on low flame for another 5 minutes.
In the end, if you wish, add extra tampering of chopped garlic and red chili powder with ghee.
Serve hot with roti & extra tsp ghee on top of it.
If you have methi, or radish leaves then add that also.
Clean the leaves properly and wash 4 - 5 times to remove the dirt.
If you want to puree, then chop it roughly. Otherwise chop finely.
Add corn flour or gram flour or wheat flour to after lid opens. To avoid any lumps, mix the flour with 2 - 3 tbsp water and mix well.
I have dry roasted gram flour before adding it to the prepared saag. Then cook on slow flame.
This is vegan sarson ka saag recipe. If you are on Keto diet, just avoid adding lots of onion or add in limited quantity.
If you want you can serve with 1 tsp fresh cream or extra butter for that extra richness.
