Cover and cook until the greens are wilted, about a minute. Season with lime juice and a few pinches garam masala, then turn onto a platter and garnish with the sprigs of cilantro.

NOTES : Deborah cites Joe Evans for this dish that marries the rich aromas of a curry with the speed and lightness of stirfry. The ghee is an important flavor in this dish. Serve with Naan or pappadums.
