South Indian Sautéed Spinach

This simple spinach sauté, inspired by a dish called palakura vepudu, is quick to make and has a wonderfully rich aroma and flavor. The secret is infusing the dish with a tarka—spices toasted in butter to bloom their flavors and fragrances. We use cumin seeds and mustard seeds as the flavor foundation for the dish; alliums and other aromatics are cooked briefly in the tarka to soften their bite.

Tip

Don't use baby spinach for this dish, as the leaves quickly turn soggy and limp. Mature spinach is sturdier and more flavorful. Look for bunches with large, dark green leaves and snappy stems.
