WOW! This was dinner tonight with naan and it was awesome! I less than halved the recipe. I used 100 gms. spinach, 200 gms. broccoli florets(chopped), 200 gms. mustard leaves, 1 medium tomato, 1/2 tbsp. oil, 1/4 cup cornflour and 1/4 cup dried fenugreek leaves(kasoori methi). I halved all the seasoning ingredients. I boiled the fresh green leaves(spinach and mustard) in 1.5 cups of water to which I'd added 1 tsp. of salt. Rest about everything was perfect. The dish was a beautiful dark green(Christmas green!) colour. We loved it. Thank you for posting this especially this time of the year when it's so cold and saag is something we must have. Thank you so much. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

This recipe is truly delicious. My husband, who is a chef, was raving about the way it made the house smell as soon as he walked in the door. Healthy, easy, and so tasty! I used dried fenugreek leaves, 16 oz. turnip greens, 16 oz. mustard greens, and about 8 oz. spinach, all frozen. I kept the ginger in good-sized pieces, and doubled the chili powder. I thought that the spices wouldn't be enough for this huge pot of greens, but it is perfect! I also used a hand blender. Definitely a keeper. My husband mixed leftovers with plain yogurt and Sriracha for a dip, too.

Not sure why mine didn't work out as well as others'... I followed the recipe exactly. But the spices were overwhelming with mine. I'm going to try it again later, but cut down on the spices a little.

Excellent. I used the frozen greens I had on hand: two packs of mustard greens and one of collards. I added dried fenugreek seeds to the seasonings as I had no leaves. I also made the mistake of using my blender. It burnt the motor out despite the fact I kept adding extra water and oil. Regardless, the recipe is great. We look forward to making it again.
