Spiced Mustard Greens (Saag)

Serves 10

Recipe by Anup Kaphle


3 tablespoons mustard oil

1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced

4 bunches mustard greens, washed, dried, and chopped into 1-inch pieces

2 dried red chili peppers

1½ teaspoons kosher salt


Heat the mustard oil in a large cast-iron skillet or a wok over medium-high heat and add the minced ginger and the dried red chile peppers. Cook, stirring constantly, until the ginger is light brown and fragrant, about a minute. Add the mustard greens and salt and cook, stirring often to toss the greens, until the greens are soft and wilted, 4 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a warm bowl and serve immediately.
