Crunchy and Flavorful Side Dish

Spring onions are available only during a short season each year. Whenever I see them in the market, I grab one or two bunches and prepare various dishes to satisfy my taste buds.

Spring onions are very nutritious. They are rich in soluble fiber, vitamins, folate, and minerals that are essential for our health.

This particular curry is moderately spicy and flavorful. No grinding is required in this recipe, which makes it very simple, easy, and quick (I was able to make this dish in only 30 minutes). I served the curry with chapati, but you can pair it with any type of flatbread or with flavored rice.

Now, let me share with you the detailed recipe.
