1. Heat 2 tspns of the oil in a skillet over medium high heat.  Add ginger and garlic and saute for 1 minute. Add in curry powder and stir for 30 seconds.  Stir in coconut milk, and, if using, sugar.  Cook until the the coconut milk is reduced by half, 5 minutes or so, stirring often.  Stir in greens and lime juice, reduce heat to medium and cook for 1-2 minutes or until greens are wilted.  Pour the greens and sauce onto a serving platter that has enough depth to hold the liquid.
