Spring Onion in Besan Flour Stir Fry

The only use of spring onions that I know of is garnishing mainly manchurian dishes. I knew that its crunchy, gives a nice aroma and increases the overall flavor of the dish. Whenever I get a bunch of spring onions, I use it minimally and the rest will be left unused finally to meet its end at the dustbin. So I stopped getting spring onions itself. Then I came across this recipe from Jeyashris kitchen and I was instantly hooked to it. So got a bunch of spring onions and tried this. To my dismay the huss had an instant liking to this recipe that whenever we go grocery shopping, he runs to grab a bunch and demands this dish to be made.

~*What U Need*~
Spring Onion - 1 bunch
Besan / Kadalai maavu - 2 tbsp
Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam masala - a pinch
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt to taste

How I made it:
Wash and chop the spring onions very finely. In a kadai, heat oil, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and curry leaves and allow to splutter. Now add the chopped spring onions and stir well. Add salt and mix well. Allow this to cook till it becomes dry.
Add the besan, red chilli powder and garam masala at this stage and mix well. Saute well till the besan gets cooked and the mixture looks dry and non sticky.

Serve as a side dish for rice. We had this with dhal and it was a nice combination.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
