Spring onion now a days is used in many dishes since its a healthy ingredient.  We use it in salads, noodles and also as part of gojju etc. Today I would like to put up spring onion stir fry which I learnt from one of my friends way back in 1980 when we stayed at Nipani on the Karnataka-Maharashtra border. This is an easy dish to prepare and a good side-dish either with Chapati or as a side dish for lunch/dinner.

What you need to have:

1. Spring onions greens chopped – 2 cups

2. Spring onions chopped – 3/4 cup

3. Tomato chopped -1/4 cup

4. Potato chopped – 1/4 cup

    Hey, really nice blog. I quite like the step by step pics that you upload with each recipe. I am sure it takes a lot of effort 🙂
    Spring Onion stir fry is one of my favourites. I use more of potatoes though, and do not add tomatoes. Your preparation looks yummy!
