A favorite in my mom’s kitchen was a very simple rendition of chicken cooked with fresh seasonal greens and Bengali spices. It was pure, wholesome, comforting, and redolent with the rich and heady scents of cinnamon, cardamom, and ginger. I once re-created this for a casual dinner with friends. I did not have a lot of time, but I did have a lot of kale and spinach on hand. Childhood memories helped me recapture this lovely dish, almost the way mom made it. It has been an unqualified hit sin
