Pui Saag er Chorchori


Pui Saag - 250 gm
Pumpkin - 100 gm
Potato -1 medium sized
Potol/Parwal - 100 gm
Green Chillies -3
Kala Jeera - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder -1tsp
Sugar - 1/4 tsp
Salt - As required


Cut the potato and Potol lengthwise and pumpkin into cubes.  Then cut and clean the saag.  Cut the leaves and also the data or stems into 1-inch long pieces and slit the stems in between. Wash these and keep aside.

Heat oil in kadai and add kala jeera.  Once they start crackling, add all the vegetables and fry them until they start turning brown.  Now add the leaves. Fry them all together and cover with a lid for 5 min.  Add turmeric, sugar, salt and a little bit of water.  Don't add too much water as this is a dry curry.  Fry them till the vegetables are all cooked and the water dries up.  Remove from fire.

This tastes really good with dal and rice.
