2 Tbs oil half an onion – chopped 3 cloves of garlic -chopped
a knob of fresh ginger – chopped 1 tsp coriander – ground
1/2 tsp turmeric cayenne to taste optional: garam masala
1/2 pound chard 1/3 cup water salt to taste
1/3 cup yogurt
Directions: In a large saucepan or frying pan, saute onion in oil. Add garlic, ginger, and spices and stir them around for a few minutes.
Chop greens and add them to the pan with the water and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer for a few minutes.
Let cool a while, then dump it in a blender and process. Add the yogurt and whirl it a little. Put it back in the pot over low heat a few minutes to warm it up again.
Saag goes well with rice and lamb or many Indian dishes; it’s also good with your scrambled eggs next morning.
