In my post on Yam in a Bowl, I did mention that I had cooked Sarson Ka Saag this winter. I know summer has set in but I feel it would be a pity not to post it particularly when the video is ready.
I love Sarson Ka Saag. Mustard is widely grown in the north of India and also in the eastern parts of the country. It is not surprising therefore that mustard oil is the primary cooking medium in Bengal and of course in the other states located in the east. Bengalis are therefore not unfamiliar with mustard leaves or shorsher shaak as we Bengalis call it. The way Bengalis prepare shorsher shaak is quite different from the way North Indians prepare Sarson Ka Saag. I have a vague idea of the way it is prepared, my mum used to make it quite often.
