Recipes–Curried Spinach And Onions

Many Indian dishes are based on spinach (sag), and this one is authentic, but simple to make.  Fresh spinach and freshly ground spices make all the difference. While it is possible to shortcut this recipe, i.e. by using curry powder instead of the individual ground spices, the difference is significant.  Use freshly ground spices whenever possible.
