Indian Wilted Spinach
This dish is from Northern India where there are very little resources and spices are rare.
3 bunches spinach- use top quality
red chilli flakes
½ t black mustard seeds
6-7 garlic cloves mashed
1-2 t turmeric
Heat oil add mustard seeds once they start crackling add turmeric, red chili flakes and mashed garlic and sauté some more for 1-2 minutes. Add spinach one handful at a time, folding into the spice mixture to wilt it. Once the spinach is all wilted, add salt and a lot of black pepper.
If you want to add potatoes to this dish, fry potatoes first in Oil and cumin on high heat to create a nice seared coating on the potato.
Then add spinach a handful at a time then add ginger powder.
Once wilted, add hot water, cover and let the potatoes cook.
If this dish is not spicy enough at the very end, add garam masala.
