Submitted by Lisa Janz, Tucson CSA member. Adapted from Madhur Jaffrey’s Indian Cooking

1 bunch of greens
1/2 onion
2 tablespoon ghee or vegetable oil
1 fresh hot green chili (Thai chilies work best)
1 teaspoon peeled, finely grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp garam masala (Indian spice mix available at 17th street or other international market)

Cut greens into 1 inch wide strips. Finely chop onion.
Heat oil in pan over medium heat and put in onions when hot. Stir and fry for about 3 minutes. Add chopped greens, chilli, ginger, salt and sugar. Stir and cook for 5 minutes.
Add water, stir, and cover tightly. Turn heat to low and cook for about 10 minutes.
Uncover and boil away excess liquid. Sprinkle with garam masala, mix and serve.
