Sarson ka saag makki di roti

This is a traditional Punjabi recipe which is popular throughout India specially during the winter season. The mustard green or sarson ka saag is high in iron and rich in vitamins. The mustard green is also high in fibres, and has a rough texture, so to enhance the flavor and texture we add more seasonal greens like spinach and fenugreek leaves.

This side-dish goes with the traditional flatbreads made with gluten-free corn meal flour or makki di roti and the Punjabis serve it with homemade white butter. After cooking a lot of traditional recipes from different states , I noticed that our food grains used traditionally were always gluten-free. This combo of rotis made of corn meal flour served with the mustard green saag, helps to keep the body warm during winter and nourish it.
