NO! Kale isn't the same as Mustard greens. mustard greens are more pungent than kale. also, i think that mustard greens need a *lot* of cooking, since their cell walls are thicker.

I love this site, Ustaad-ji! You're the new Ravi Shankar for cultural diplomacy. Regarding *MY* saag recipe: 1. I use mustard greens, with minimal stems. 2. spinach. 3. onions/garlic/ginger. 4. salt 5. red chili powder. NOTHING else.
