Sarson Aloo da Saag /Spicy Mustard greens With Potato

Sarson da saag is a popular vegetable dish in the Punjab region of India and Pakistan made from mustard leaves (sarson) and spices. However, it is also popular in other neighboring states of Haryana and Rajasthan. I did not follow the regular way of cooking this saag , I add little twist adding potato to it and lots of chilies and tomato to adjust slight bitter taste of mustard greens. It is also not smooth as the regular sarson da saag you are mostly acquainted with but a bit coarse. But with all this twist I assure you all you will not be disappointed by the make. It comes out wonderful and is very delectable in winter time. You can adjust the heat according to your choice but I am sure once you try this you will definitely going to love this awesome spicy winter delicacy.
