Origins and history
The dish is regarded as the traditional way to prepare saag and is usually served with makki di roti (literally "unleavened cornbread". It can be topped with either butter (unprocessed white or processed yellow butter) or more traditionally with ghee (clarified butter). Some spinach (called palak in Hindi) may be added to enhance colour and thicken the dish, though this may alter the flavor. Also added some bathua, sarson greens, onion, tomato and all ground spice.
