Kashmiri Saag


Kashmiri Wazwan recipe, Kashmiri Haakh recipe. To cook it in a jiffy, I have used frozen spinach.

If using whole leaf frozen spinach, like I have done, this dish should not take more than 15 minutes including preparation. No chopping or cleaning of spinach required, just throw all the ingredients together in a pot and you have a wholesome, healthy, nutritious and delicious dish generously spiked with garlic and red chillies but since the  chillis are Kashmiri, the dish is not spicy hot!!  And if like me you have a batch of peeled garlic always handy, should not take more than 10 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. oil (mustard if preferred)
  • 3 brown cardamoms, or 3 to 4 green cardamoms
  • 10 kashmiri whole chillies
  • 25 whole garlic, peeled
  • 250 gms. whole spinach
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt to taste
  1. Heat oil and add the brown cardamom, kashmiri whole chillies, whole garlic, whole spinach (saag), little salt and water.
  2. Cook till done (in a pressure cooker for 1 whistle).
  3. Serve hot.

P.S.: The quantity of red chillies may seem daunting but trust me the saag did not turn out spicy hot as would be expected because Kashmiri chillies as usual are mild.
