If you happen to buy bunch of spring onions to garnish and have no idea what to do with the rest, here is a subzi for you to make, so that you do not have to really waste the rest after all. Nutritionally, Spring Green Onions have a combination of the benefits of onions and greens. They are an excellent source of vitamin K and vitamin C, and a very good source of vitamin A too. Spring onions can be added to dal and make it a much tastier dish.
This time I tried Bhurji recipe with spring onions and spinach. An amazingly flavourful and quick to make subzi that goes well with chapatis and puris.This green leafy vegetable is made up of 92% water, making it especially beneficial in keeping you hydrated. Spinach is also rich in magnesium, potassium, and B-vitamins, all of which are known to increase energy.
Bhurji is pan-fried Indian vegetable recipe which can be served as side dish. It is made with spring green onion, spinach or palak, saute with onions, garlic, ginger, green chilly. It just takes about 30 minutes to make and taste delicious with roti or plain paratha.
