‘Dishtory’ – Saag Punjabi

By Isabelle Category: Latest Cuisine Comments: 4 comments Tags:

Our highly-acclaimed Saag Punjabi has an impressive history. This infamous leaf-based dish made up of mainly spinach, originates from the region of Punjab, but also eaten in Nepal, the North of India – and of course it is popular among the inhabitants of… Walsall, UK!

Saag’s history links it to vibrant green vegetables such as spinach, mustard leaves, finely chopped broccoli or other greeneries… but the main element of the dish is the added spices. We have our own top-secret spin on Saag which includes Chef Rashpal’s signature spices… I mean we’d love to share them with you… but these secrets are locked away in Rashpal’s cupboard!

Some background about our Saag…

Our specialty Saag Punjabi won the 2012 Birmingham Airport Hello Curry competition which represented as Birmingham’s signature curry dish! The love for this dish and it’s notoriety among diners has now made it one of the most popular dish ordered at our Walsall restaurant. It’s addictive flavour and vibrant colour is something that can send you senseless for Saag!
