Ingredients

  • 1 bag spinach
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • salt
  • cooking oil

Method

Add cooking oil to a hot pan. You can use sunflower oil, corn oil or cold-pressed rapeseed oil.

Add a quarter to a half a teaspoon of cumin seeds, then add the sliced garlic and cook for about a minute. Add the spinach and wilt down. Season the spinach with salt as it is cooking. Spinach needs quite a bit of salt.

Add a chopped tomato and cook for a further few minutes, until the spinach has wilted and the tomato is cooked through. Serve with curries, meat or fish.
