Cooking Method :

Pressure cook these for one hour approximately. Put in ginger and 10 garlic cloves along with the leaves. Let it cool for some time.

Take out the mixture and put it in a blender with 50 gm of corn flour and churn for 30 seconds. Mixture should remain a little lumpy.

Heat oil/ghee in deep frying vessel. Put 10 cloves of finely chopped garlic. When brown, add finely chopped unions and green chillies. When onions turn dark golden, add the saag mixture, salt (to taste) and turmeric.

Add red chilly powder (optional).

Let it cook for 30 minutes till it comes to required consistency to eat.

Serve steaming hot with melted ghee (clarified butter), home-made butter or salted butter. Serve with corn flour rotis - Makki di Roti.
