Mustard Greens Roti with Gobi Mattar Masala

Now days there are many events happening with in the bloggers which makes me come across many different and unique dishes…. One such event is the Roti Mela hosted by Srivalli of cooking 4 all seasons….. There are many different types of rotis coming up…. My contribution for the roti mela is Mustard Greens Roti.

Well, talking about this Mustard Greens Roti… As we all know that these dark greens are high in vitamin A which would help to stop hair loss. Once I a had heavy hair fall and I was advised to take a lot of dark green and that made me to hunt for some delicious dark green recipes and I found this recipe in a food sight (cant remember the site name) and changed some of the ingredients and resulted in this roti recipe. The actual the recipe called for methi leaves. The mustered greens have slight bitter taste but it’s good when fully cooked.

My Gobi mattar masala is a standard recipe in my house…. I make panner butter masala, panner matter masala and many more by keeping this as a base…. The cashew nut paste and heavy cream helps to make the gravy more rich and decadent.

  12. Thanks for the mustard greens recipe Sukanya. I've seen it in the grocery store, but not bought it until now. Didn't know how would it taste or what to do with it? Now I 've got to try this. But one question though, is it bitter or tastes like spinach or any other greens?

  14. Hi Madhuram:
    Welcome to my blog.... Mustard greens have light bitter taste, but by cooking them they will taste good. Ur masala powders will add more taste to the dish. They taste almost like methi leaves.... Do try it and let me know....
