Sarson means the leaves of the mustard plant, and makki is the local name for corn. Saag is the name of the dish that is made by crushing, grating, squishing and grinded mustard leaves. Believe us, a lot of effort and strength goes into finely crushing these leaves so they are like whipped cream. And Makki ki roti is the flatbread made from corn flour. This unrivaled duo is a traditional dish that has proven to be peerless over centuries. It is high in nutrition, higher in calories, and highest in taste, especially if served with ghee or butter. Since ghee is high in fat content itself, it quickly adds more to the calorie counter. In addition to the main title holders of this dish, sometimes spinach is also added to enhance taste. Other ingredients for this dish include, onions, tomatoes, green chillies, garlic, ginger, salt, and – if you forgot it – garam masala!
