Add spinach, stir, cover, and continue cooking for about 2 minutes, or until it begins to wilt. To fast cool, remove from heat, transfer to a bowl or blender, and whisk in four to six ice cubes.

Mix until desired consistency is reached. Put aside.

Warm oil in a large, nonstick over medium heat for the turmeric tofu. Add tofu and salt, and cook, stirring regularly, for approximately 10 minutes, until most sides are lightly browned. Stir in turmeric until the tofu is uniformly coated.

Add spinach gravy to the pan. Bring to a brief simmer for 1 to 2 minutes over medium heat, then remove from heat. Garam masala and lime juice are combined and served.
