  1. Jaishrikrishna……

    really your website is a boon for us. 🙂

    Can you please tell whether this singhi saag
    should be of curry consistency to be eaten
    with rice.
    Am not clear about its consistency when it
    is ready to be eaten with phulko as suggested.


  2. Hi Sharmila, Jai shri krishna
    Traditionally Singhi jo Saag is eaten with Phulko by the Bhatias. The consistency should curry consistency. This is one of the few dishes where the gravy is on the thinner side and not like a puree. The more potatoes you add in the dish, the thicker it gets.
    It is also a matter of personal preference as to how thick you want the Saag to be…enjoy the dish….
