Winter season is here and we cannot stop but think of what is it about the season that we collectively connect it with. And besides the winter chill along with a piping cup of tea, there's one delight that all of us have a special liking for; it's the Sarson Ka Saag with Makke Ki Roti. It is a winter treat that most of us must have cherished at least once. Even Bollywood diva Kareena Kapoor Khan cannot resist this Punjabi winter delight.
A popular north Indian delight, sarson ka saag is a vegetarian delight made using seasonal mustard leaves with other leafy vegetables like bathua, spinach and radish leaves. It is cooked with a host of spices, topped with butter and is served with makke ki roti. Makke or maize flour is made using dried corn kernels, milled into smooth, pale yellow coloured flour.
