I love turnips, especially the baby ones, so I had to try the
Mughal style baby turnips
as described by

. This one’s definitely a keeper. I loved it, and my son did too. I really liked the depth of flavor, and the spicy-sweet combination combined with the bitternes of the turnips. I didn’t have any spinach, so I substituted some romaine lettuce that needed to go, which worked out pretty well I thought. I served it with some heat-and-serve bhatura from the local Indian grocery, which were a bit hit. I’m thinking collard greens would also work well here. I’m not usually a fan of mustard greens, but they might actuall work in this dish. Hmmm. An excuse to experiment.

Hi Patrick! My apologies for taking so long to get back to you here. I'm very glad to hear that the recipe worked out at your house.
Applying the it-needs-to-go romaine was a fine idea. The reason the turnip greens ended up in my dish was a very similar motivation...I thought "They might as well go here, because if I stash them back in the fridge, I won't come up with a better idea for them."
I agree, I think mustard greens would be great in that sauce - it's a great sauce to build off of (and I do happen to love mustard greens).
