Teen Saag #sikandalouscuisine
A lovely recipe - again from Nepal , my drivers wife taught this to me . The quantities you vary to suit your taste . Traditionally this is made using Nepali saag Putta - another leafy green . We made the this saag using more or less equal quantities of three leafy greens .Go with whatever greens you have - the concept is what I am sharing .1/2 Kg Mixed Greens - Red Cholai , Green Cholai & Methi Greens - Chop the leaves fine - don't puree.
1/2 Teaspoon Haldi.5-7 Dried Red Chilies
Make Paste using 30 Ml Raw Mustard Oil :
4-5 Green Chilies - Adjust
1/2 " Ginger.Heat mustard oil , splutter jeera . Add dried red chilies and garlic. When garlic begins to change color add greens , haldi and salt.Stir and cook covered . You add no water.When saag is 80% done stir in the ' Paste ' , mix well , cook one minute and take off the flame. Rustic and delicious !
