I was afraid the spinach would be overcooked following the method described, so I started with sauteing the onion and added the spinach with the rice and tomatoes, it turned out perfect, just the way we like spinach. I liked the comination of spices.

  1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Saute spinach with salt just until leaves are wilted. Drain off excess liquid; reserve spinach.
  2. Wipe out skillet and melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Saute onion until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add cumin, cardamom, coriander and turmeric and stir to combine. Add cooked rice, tomatoes and reserved spinach and cook, stirring gently to combine, just until the rice is warmed through.
