Prep time: 15minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes

 Serves 4

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1¼ teaspoons cumin seeds

½ teaspoon fennel seeds

1 teaspoon peeled minced ginger

1 tablespoon peeled minced garlic

1 fresh green chili pepper, minced

1 teaspoon ground turmeric

½ lb (250g) spinach leaves, washed and tough stalks stems and chopped

½ lb (250g) red Swiss chard, washed and tough stalks removed and chopped

Salt to taste

½ teaspoon sugar

½ cup (10 g) fresh coriander leaves (cilantro), including soft stems, chopped

¼ teaspoon garam masala

1 Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat and add the cumin and fennel seeds: they should sizzle upon contact with the hot oil. Quickly add the ginger, garlic, green chili peppers, and ground turmeric and cook, stirring, about 2 minutes.

2 Add the spinach and swiss chard leaves and salt, cover the pan, and cook, stirring as needed, over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, then reduce the heat to medium-low heat and cook until the chard is tender, about 5 minutes.

3 Mix in the fresh coriander leaves.  Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle the garam masala on top, and serve.
