Kale smoothes out the flavours of the livers and the Indian spices, and although you can’t actually taste it in this recipe, you must add it. One bunch of kale usually has 7 to 8 stalks. To get the right amount for this dish, take about 3 large stalks and tear o¤ the kale leaves. It doesn’t matter if you’re slightly o¤ on the amount. Serves 6 heat oil in a medium pot on high heat for 1 minute. Add asafoetida and cook for 10 seconds. Add onions, reduce the heat to medium and sauté for 5 to 8 minutes, or until golden to medium brown.

Cut the tougher, bottom stems (about 1@ inches) o¤ the spinach. If you don’t like to eat the stems, cut o¤ all of them but add more spinach leaves to compensate. If the rapini leaves are flowering on top, cut o¤ the flowers. Cut o¤ the bottom stems of the rapini. If you don’t eat any of the rapini stems, cut o¤ as much as you want, but again compensate with extra rapini leaves. Combine spinach and arugula (or rapini) in a large bowl.

Remove the mixture from the stove and cool in the pot for half an hour or until lukewarm. Place a fine-mesh sieve over a bowl.
