  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Salt, pepper
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons garam masala or curry powder
  • 3 tablespoons mango chutney, minced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced

Step 1Rinse the spinach and set it aside to drain.

Step 2Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add the mustard seeds. Toast them 1 to 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the oil. When hot, add the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook the shrimp just until they're opaque, about 2 minutes. Remove them with a slotted spoon and set them aside.

Step 3Add the garam masala, chutney and garlic to the pan. Cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the spinach, preferably still with some water on it, stirring often until it has wilted. If the spinach is too dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water. Add the shrimp back to the pan. Stir to reheat.
