I love Indian food and also cook a lot of it as well. This dish exactly as is is very delicious. If you don't enjoy very hot food you may consider using only 1 pepper as they are large. I enjoyed this with Roti and makes a lovely lunch or light meaL.
I was a little afraid to try this spinach mush didn't sound too appealing. But I needed a vegetable recipe to go with some Indian potatoes I was making for a vegetarian dinner so thought I would brave it. Wow this is wonderful! The only changes I made were to use kale instead of mustard greens since the grocery didn't have them. I also used fresh ginger and garlic in place of the paste but otherwise I stuck to the recipe as written. If you like spinach this is a terrific side dish. Be sure to use real ghee; you can tell the difference. The tomatoes give the dish a light tanginess that perfectly offsets any bitterness. I highly recommend this with any Indian meal. Thanks for a lovely recipe!
Excellent. I substituted one Habanero pepper and two Serrano peppers sautéed in a little ghee. Also added fresh portabella mushrooms. Served it with Allrecipes Bhagari Jhinga Indian Stir fried shrimp in cream sauce and Allrecipes Basmati rice.
Delicious! Served this with basmati rice along with Tandoori chicken grilled on a Big Green Egg. Used the greens from my garden: equal parts chard spinach arugula and kale. I doubled the cumin tomato and added about 1/2 tsp. of garam masala.
I served this recipe with aloo chaat roti and a side of raw tomato as a hearty brunch for myself and my children. I subtracted the red chilies to make the recipe kid friendly. I cleaned the kitchen while everyone ate and I kept peeking around the corner only to continuously hear 'mmmm' noises from the dining room table which always signifies a winner recipe! To my surprise my children ate every bite! Great recipe.
We have been trying many different recipes to make saag at home and this was the closest.. It was very good! I had to skip the chiles because I didnt have any so added some red crushed pepper. Another thing that wasn't clear to me so I guessed was qtys of the Mustard Greens & Spinach. I bought bagged Spinach and we grew our own Mustard Greens. I wish there was a qty by weight given. I followed the directions as stated and modified only by adding about 50% more cumin seeds a whole tomato and added 1/2 tsp of garam masala. It was really really great!
It has a good base to build off of but mine turned out fairly bland. I d made this for my Indian girlfriend and she directed me how to make it more palatable (after the addition of some grated ginger madras curry power turmeric and a splash of a pepper-lime sauce it was much better!)
