Spring Onion Potato Sabzi Spring Onion

I love potatoes. Simply love it in any form, even if it is paired with any other ingredient. Have you tried my chicken curry with potatoes and brinjal recipe yet? You will understand me when I say I love to pair them up with other vegetables or meat if you try the recipe!

By mid week, I usually run out of vegetables that I had stocked fresh in the fridge on Sunday. Busy mid week lunch would mostly be something that is made from clearance stock.

Spring Onion Potato Sabzi

Have you ever bought a big bunch of spring onion just to make one dish out of it and chucked the remaining inside the fridge? And the next day, third day, wondered “how to use up the left over spring onion before it goes all bad?” I have always faced that problem. So this week I had half bunch of spring onion and 2 small potatoes lying at the bottom of my vegetable basket. I wanted to clear both of them and decided to make spring onion potato sabzi.

    I throw in left over spring onions in any veggie I prepare. However haven’t tried flavoring a whole sabzi with spring onions. This one looks so delicious and sure would have tasted amazing with that beetroot paratha :-)
