This simple, elegant and healthy spinach dish is spiced with panch phoran, which you will find in good spice shops — a mixture of fenugreek seeds, nigella seeds, cumin seeds, brown mustard seeds and fennel seeds in equal proportions. The flavour it adds to vegetables is amazing.

I also love to cook this dish with Chinese cabbage (wong bok), or even just regular cabbage.
