It has been awhile since we made Indian food at the house.  Since Kaleigh has really liked going out for Indian food, we thought we would give it a try.  Ashley wanted to try a new dish with it as well.

Typically, I make a channa dish and add in potato or cauliflower if I have it.  I generally add rice and sometimes make a daal too.  This time, instead of daal, I made a sarson ka saag.  It is a creamed spinach dish loaded with traditional Indian spices.

The channa came out great but was nothing new for the household.  However, I had never made a saag so I was going in fairly blind.  It was fantastic!  I used coconut cream to give it a rich flavor and it really did the trick.  The whole meal was great and a lot of fun.  Kaleigh even took some to school for her lunch.  Saag will definitely be on the menu again.
