    sdowswell's Note:

    Had some Red Chard that needed a good using a little while back, figured "hey, it's kinda like spinach... why not do up some saag with it?"... the result was not only tasty, but it was visually very stunning as well. I use Patak's Vindaloo sauce here, as it's a quick way to get the right balance of spices, but if you've got a spice set that you like, that will no doubt work too.

      I have made this many times with several of the Patak pastes and for the greens I have used chard, amaranth, spinach, kale, beet greens, and even radish greens. This is a wonderful way to enjoy the leafy greens that you may otherwise have no idea what to do with.

      Easy and delicious. I halved the recipe and added some other vegetables (including potato added with the onions at the start) that needed to be used up to make a good one pot meal. Served with homeade garlic naan.
