About Palak:

Saag (Urdu: ساگ ;Punjabi; ਸਾਗ ; Hindi: साग; NepaliसागOriyaଶାଗ) or sag is a leaf-based (spinachmustard leafBasella, etc.) dish eaten in South Asia with bread such as roti or naan,[1] or rice (in Odisha and West Bengal). Saag can be made from spinach, mustard leaves, finely chopped broccoli, or other greens, along with added spices and sometimes other ingredients such as paneer. On some menus, it is called saagwala.
Saag is more common in North Indian provinces of HaryanaUttar Pradesh, as well as in the Pakistani and Indian region ofPunjab, especially Sarson ka saag, where it may be eaten with makki ki roti. This roti is made of corn flour and is yellow in colour, though it can also be eaten with other breads. Saag/saj however can be a catch-all term for various green-leaved dishes. Saag aloo (and Saag gosht in Pakistan cuisine) is a common dish in Punjabi cuisine (both Pakistani and Indian) as served in restaurants and take-aways in the Western world.
