sarson saag makki roti Sarson saag and makki roti is a quintessential Punjabi recipe. No Punjabi food mention is complete without this delectable blend of cornmeal and mustard leaves, spinach leaves, bathua leaves ( Chenopodium album), and methi leaves (fenugreek). Of course, this is a labor of love, which requires a lot deal of time, from chopping the leaves to washing to patiently cooking the greens and letting them simmer on low heat for a good amount of time , but it's well worth the effort. You'll forget your efforts once you serve this delicious blend of vegetables to your family. I can say this because I am married to an Odiya boy. Since makki di roti and sarson da saag make a flavorful, lip-smacking, and healthy combination for Punjabis, I always wanted my hubby to enjoy it. He loves the combo as much as I, despite being from a state that uses stir frying method for greens. This is one pot of good health that you would want to have again and again.
