Spring onion ka sabzi/stir fry 

Spring onions are also called scallions or green onions. They are high in fibers, calcium and iron with little saturated fat and no cholesterol. I make sabzi with spring onions whenever I get fresh spring onions from market. I really like the mild onion flavor in the sabzi.It goes perfect as side dish with rotis/indian bread. This is very simple stir fry/sabzi with potatoes and some indian masala. 

Spring onion sabzi

Spring onion sabzi

  • 7-8 spring onion sticks
  • 1 large Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut in small cubes.
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt to taste


  • Cut and remove root from spring onions and any hard outer layer from it.
  • Wash and chop the bulbs as well as the leaves and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in pan over medium high heat, add cumin seeds and let it get brown.
  • Add potatoes to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes. Now add chopped spring onions followed by turmeric powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, red chilli powder and salt to taste. Stir in well.
