Palang Shaak Borir Ghonto / Spinach & Lentil Dumpling Medley

Ghonto usually means a mix of some things cook together. Palang shaaker ghonto, Muri ghonto, Mochar ghonto, Mulor ghonto and so on  cooked by my mother. This palang shaak borir ghonto is one of such preparation my mother cooked in winter. I saw this recipe in bengali magazine. I want to share this simple and easy Bengali traditional shaak recipe.

Ingredients :

Palang shaak - 1 bunch
Bori (Lentils dumpling) - a handful
Green peas - a handful
Turmeric powder - a pinch
Panch phoron - 1 tsp
Salt and sugar to taste

Method :

Clean and wash the leaved in running water for about 2-3 minutes. Finely chopped and keep aside.

Heat mustard oil in kadai, add bori, fry then till golden brown. Keep aside.

In the same oil add panch phoron, when seeds splutter then add palang shaak, peas, salt and turmeric powder, cover and cook till the saag is cooked properly. Remove the lid add sugar and mix well.

Garnish with fried bori and serve hot with hot steamed rice.
