Simple spring onion curry recipe


  • 1 big bunch of Spring onions-Washed thoroughly and chopped finely
  • (Rinse the onions thoroughly as dirt may be lodged between the leaves. Trim any wilted parts and the tip of the pink root.)
  • 1 cup gram flour (besan)
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 green chillies-finely chopped
  • 1 dried red chilli crumbled
  • 1/2 tsp finely chopped ginger
  • 1/2 tsp finely chopped garlic
  • 1 stick of curry leaves
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin seeds
  • 1/4 tsp mustard seeds
  • Pinch of asafoetida powder
  • Pinch of turmeric
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp oil

Cooking Instructions

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds, curry leaves, asafoetida, chopped chillies, ginger, garlic. Saute for a few seconds.

Add the finely chopped spring onions and a pinch of salt. Saute for 1-2 minutes. These onions cook in no time at all.

Meanwhile, make a thin paste of the gram flour in 2 cups water with a pinch of turmeric powder and salt to taste. Once the spring onions are sauted, pour the gram flour paste into the pan and keep stirring constantly on a medium flame. In 5-6 minutes the gram flour will get cooked as the curry thickens.

Taste and check if gram flour is cooked. (It shouldn''t stick to the tongue ) Remove from flame into a serving bowl. Serve hot with Phulkas / Chapatis.
