Sauteed Spinach With Indian Spices

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by zeldaz51

A fast dish to make, once the ingredients are in order. Adapted from a Martha Stewart Recipe published in 1996. Not too spicy, a nice side for Tandoori Chicken, but make sure the leaves are good and dry or it will turn out too wet.

This goes together quickly and the flavors were subtle, making it a perfect side for a spicier curry dish. Will be making this again. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
