Cover and cook in low fire.
There will be enough liquid coming from the leaves and the leaves will be cooked quickly. Do not overcook; you will lose all the goodness.

Spinach is a good source of iron which does not get absorbed and vitamin C is necessary for its absorption. Lime juice has vitamin C and helps the absorption.
