Mustard Green With Potato | Sarson Saag Recipe

Mustard Green With Potato

Mustard green/leaves are similar to kale and collard green. If you haven’t tried mustard leaves I would highly recommend that you can give it at least a try. Mustard leaves are the peppery leafy green of the mustard plant and are used frequently in Indian, Chinese, and Japanese cooking. Mustard leaves are filled with lots of health benefit. They have an extremely high level of antioxidants, in the form of vitamin A and C.

Mustard leaves are also called Sarson ka saag in Hindi. Sarson ka saag with Makki di roti (unleavened cornbread) is a very famous recipe from Panjabi (India) cuisine. However, here I have cooked a different dish by using mustard leaves. Making this dish is so easy, first, I have cooked the mustard leaves. Then cooked the spices with potato and then mix the cooked leaves, and it’s done. This dish can be served with white/brown rice/quinoa or roti/any flatbread.

Make this easy, healthy dish and let me know how it went. Feel free to ask me any question related to my recipes. I would love to hear from you.
