“I recently fell in love with chole. Locally, menu dishes called "saag" are made with spinach, which is why I've listed it as Palak/Saag. I've played around with this, increasing the amount of spinach to tomato, lowering the fat and salt, etc. This is a healthy, tasty dish that is great with naan, roti, or even dosas.”
