Indian Creamed Greens

Indian Creamed Greens
Inspired by

1 bunch spinach, rough steams removed
1 bunch braising greens, rough stems removed
3 T olive oil
1 t cumin
1 dried chile
1 medium onion, chopped
1-2 t fresh ginger, grated
1-2 gloves garlic, grated
2 t ground coriander
1 t garam masala
4 T light cream

Heat oil in a large pot or Dutch Oven. Add cumin and chile and fry for about 30 seconds, until fragrant. Add onion and cook until soft, about 6 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, coriander, and cook for another minutes. Season with salt to taste. Add spinach and braising mix and a couple tablespoons of water. Cook covered 10 – 20 minutes, until greens are tender. Add garam masala and cream, cook another 3-4 minutes.

We ate this over rice the first night and then with naan the second night.
