Makki Ki Roti with Sarson Ka Saag is the most popular winter meal in Punjab, and many who live outside Punjab also know about it. If you know about or have tasted Sarson Ka Saag, I am sure that you will like this other meal that I will talk about here. This is another Punjabi curry that can be enjoyed with Makki Ki Roti – Shalgam Ka Saag.
This combo is another winter favorite. Of course, it is not as popular as Sarson Ka Saag, but this one is a divine meal to me and many others like me.
As you will see in the video, Shalgam Ka Saag is traditionally cooked in a unique way. Unfortunately, that traditional recipe is being forgotten very fast.
However, no matter how Shalgam Ka Saag is cooked, it tastes incredible. As you will see in this recipe video, chef Harpal Singh Sokhi himself acknowledges that he would rather see the recipe evolve than die.
The chef has given some valuable insights into how Shalgam Ka Saag should be prepared, and we can all benefit from that.
One more thing, try using extra virgin olive oil instead of ghee. Trust me; the Saag will still taste great. You may see the Makki Ki Roti recipe here.
