Whole spinach greens

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Fresh spinach (after trimming)
1½ \N Tsps. crushed fennel seeds
1 teaspoon Ginger powder

2 2-3 whole dried red chilies 2 2-3 sm fresh green chilies ⅓ ts asafetida (if you have it) I love Indian recipes for greens but they usually take so long to cook that I only make them on special occasions. Recently I found one for spinach that's quick and good and salt-free. As always, adjust the seasonings to taste. {Taken from Shahnaz Mehta's _Good Cooking From India_.) Thoroughly wash spinach, trimming off only the ends of the stems. Do not chop. Drain. In a dry iron pan, stir crushed fennel seeds and ginger powder over moderate heat until the powders become slightly brown (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside. In a large skillet or wok heat 2-3 TBSPS of your favorite liquid for sauteing. Sprinkle the asafetida, then add the chiles, then the spinach, then the fennel and ginger. Stir fry 1-2 minutes. Cover and simmer 2-4 minutes, then uncover and stir until the spinach is ready. Do not over cook.
