You know the winter produce has arrived when your fridge is stocked with lots of greens. Methi, palak, sarson - green vegetables rule our menu like a boss. Sarson (or mustard leaves) is the most loved winter green as unlike others, it is strictly available during the cold weather only. Sarson ka saag is our winter staple, and we love every bit of it. Typical Punjabi meal of sarson ka saag and makki ki roti makes this lovely weather all the more beautiful.
Many families make sarson ka saag in a huge quantity in the anticipation that most of it will be consumed. If you top the saag and your roti with oodles of butter, there's only so much you can eat in one meal. So, more often than not, you are left with bowlful of sarson ka saag that mostly goes into freezer for next time you crave for it. If you are the one to eat frozen food, don't let the leftover saag go to waste. Make other interesting recipes with it.
