Instant Spinach Saag Recipe With Broccoli, Cauliflower


broccoli palak saag
Do you love sarson ka saag? Of course, you have heard about palak ka saag and enjoyed its heavenly combination with makki di roti and sarson.

But have you ever heard of broccoli palak saag?

Yes, this post takes inspiration from Nature Kahlon's broccoli-spinach (palak) saag recipe. I was so attracted to the post that I had to give this easy saag recipe a try.  I modified the recipe a little to add another interesting twist and come up with my own broccoli-palak- saag with shalgam.


I must tell you when the palak saag was cooking, my house was filled with a distinct aroma that reminds me of Punjab villages, where this green leafy curry is cooked in a traditional way. This is my best attempt at saag making. It tastes similar to the authentic sarson saag that we relish in Punjab.

I am in love with the aroma of palak broccoli saag.

Considered among world's healthiest foods, broccoli is rich in vitamins K and C, potassium, and fiber. The green vegetable is a good source of folic acid.

When steamed, broccoli can induce cholesterol-lowering action and the fiber in it binds together with bile acids in the digestive tract, helping in easier excretion and elimination of unwanted components. A rich source of kaempferol, a flavonoid, broccoli has the ability to reduce the impact of allergy-related substances.


This easy saag recipe makes a handy alternative to sarson saag.

Here's the authentic sarson saag recipe.
