Spiced spinach.

1 large (about 1/2-lb.) onion, thinly sliced 1 teaspoon salad oil 2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander 1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric 1/4 teaspoon crushed dried hot chilies 2 pounds spinach Lemon wedges Salt

In a 5- to 6-quart pan over medium heat, combine onion, oil, 2 tablespoons water, garlic, ginger, cumin, coriander, turmeric, and chilies. Stir often until onion is golden brown, about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, rinse spinach well, discarding roots and wilted leaves; drain. Fill pan with as much spinach as it will hold. Stir often until leaves wilt; add remaining leaves as space permits. When all the spinach is in the pan, turn heat to high and stir spinach until wilted and most of the accumulating liquid evaporates, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour into a bowl. Add lemon and salt to taste. Serves 4.
