Winter season is seen with the vegetable vendors “thela” (cart) loaded with a variety of greens!! I mean, just looking at the cart loaded so beautifully makes you wanna buy something or the other, even if your refigerator is loaded. My friends always wonder n are amazed at my love for the subzi market (veggie market). The shine in my eyes is something that they cant connect with, n just walking past or driving past one makes me wanna stop n maybe just walk around the whole place, n of course pick up the freshest of produce that mother Earth has given us in full!!! I dont know how many of you agree with me, or have such feelings – but I surely do, n honestly I love that feeling!!
Spring onions are one such greens that the market is so very flooded with these days, n here is my all time fav recipe for this simple but excellent veggie.
1/2 kg – spring onions
1/4 tspn – jeera
1/4 tspn – turmeric powder
3 green chillies
a pinch of hing
1/2 tspn – amchur powder / dried mango powder (pls use this only if you like your dish to be chatpata)
1/2 tspn – garam masala
salt as per taste
Chop off the roots of the spring onions & chop finely the leaves n the onions.
Scrape n dice the potatoes into small cubes
Wash both of them together
In a kadai / pan, heat some oil
Add the jeera n hing
When they are turning brown, add the turmeric & green chillies.
Quickly add the washed veggies before the masala burns
Close lid & let cook on low flame
Keep stirring in between till both the potatoes n the leaves are cooked.
Sprinkle amchur powder & garam masala & check salt.
Serve with chappatis.
This is a very simple recipe but is very much liked by me and my hubby. So I am hoping that you will like it too.
