A Few Final Thoughts

These thoughts are also available in the recipe card so that you can print them:

  • Serving: Serve it hot with rice, lemon, hand-broken onion, and green chilies.
  • Substitutions: Jakhya seed is a local spice of Uttrakhand state. If not available, use the cumin seeds instead.
  • Optional: Dried fenugreek leaves can be added to enhance the taste. However, traditionally it is not used in the recipe. If you do this grinding on mortar and pestle, instead of the grinder, saag will be even more delicious.
  • Caution: Cook this recipe on medium heat.

Instructions
 

  • First, wash raai in running water under a tap. After washing, chop them into large pieces. Now in a Kadai, boil greens in a little water till they become tender. Keep aside and let them come to room temperature. While it cools down, let’s make the masala paste.
  • Take a grinder jar and add tomato, ginger, garlic, green chilies, and coriander leaves. Now, make a fine paste. Grind the rye leaves which we boiled earlier.
  • Heat mustard oil in a pan. When the oil is hot, add jakhya seeds and a pinch of asafoetida.
  • When jakhya starts to crackle, add finely chopped onions and fry until golden.
  • Now, add paste of raai greens and spices and mix them well. After mixing, now we are going to add dried spices.
  • Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt. Now, mix all the ingredients well. Now, you have to roast all these ingredients properly, the better you will roast it, the better the taste of kaphli. Here, I have roasted it for 15 minutes on medium heat.
  • Now, add some water, mix well, and then cover and cook for 3 minutes. Next, make gram flour batter with water, add it, and mix well. After adding batter, keep stirring the greens continuously. You have to cook the batter for about 3 minutes on medium heat.
