Sarson Da Saag, Makki di Roti, bhai wah kya swad”…that reminds me of Dara Singh. Anyone having grown up in India knows exactly what I am talking about. Besides the fact that it was Dara Singh saying those famous lines, the sentence holds so very true…the abundance of flavor and nutrition packed in this meal is amazing! The blob of butter on the top completes the meal…you’ve just got to try it the Punjabi way!
