Khatta Mag

Every once in a while we would tired of eating regular mag and then mom would make Khatta Mag also called Mag ni Kadhi. I love this one as it’s spicy and tangy and gives a different spin to regular Mag. Here is a quick and easy recipe. Please note for Paryushan subtract green chilies and cilantro and use the dry red chilies instead. You will love this recipe as it tastes so comforting
