Saak Bhaja (Indian-Style Greens)
Source: Bharti Kirchner, The Healthy Cuisines of India (Entered by Regan Huff)
Simple. Weirdly awesome. Try with a mix of mustard greens and/or collards, kale, chard, turnip greens, broccoli greens, radish tops, any and all of it. Five-spice is a mixture of black mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, whole fenugreek and kalonji seeds.
Step by Step Instructions
- Heat oil over medium-low in wide pan. Fry five spice (black mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, fenugreek and kalonji seeds). Add onions and fry until translucent (2-3 m), stirring. Stir in turmeric and salt.
- Add greens. Cook covered on low heat until greens are limp and tender (5-10 m). Serve immediately.

Very adaptable recipe that offers a welcome change from the usual pork flavorings for greens!
