Mai'da London - Lasooni Sag

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post on here - and I may well be moved - but I am addicted to this spinach dish at the above restaurant and am trying to work out what's in it. (Apart from lots of ginger)
tried to recreate it at home, but I'm not that creative a cook. An internet search hasn't come up with any results either. Can anyone help?

  1. Went here when it first opened, wasn't blown away. What else apart from the sag is good? Would like to give it another shot, for more than just those milkshakes.

      Their lamb chops are pretty good - not quite Tayaabs level, but very tasty.

    2. well 'lasoon' means garlic, so thats another hint for you.

      for a completely easy version, wilt 500 grams of spinach and then puree in a mixer. Finely chop two onions and fry till translucent; add some chopped green chilli, ginger garlic paste and a tbsp of garam masala/cumin (or both). when the spices are done toss in the pureed spinach. eat with paratha (the frozen ones from pataks these days are pretty good).

        Thanks a lot Howler - I will try it out this week and report back.
        As re the menu, to be honest I haven't been there enough to eat my way around it. So far I've stuck to the lasooni sag as that is what is making me go back at the moment. it's my current food craze. I have either the roganjosh or karahi ghosht as I like meat/tomato combinations with the mushroom biryani rice.

          grate about a tbsp of ginger and mash it with 4 cloves garlic to get a decent ginger garlic paste.
