Spring onions are called as Eerrulli Kaavu in Kannada. We can’t store spring onions for many days as they start wilting in 2-3 days so I try to finish them off soon before spoil.Mainly people use it to for garnishing salads, noodles, soup, Manchurian, fried rice etc but there are so many other wonderful recipes out of it. I have shared before spring onion pakoda , spring onion chutney ,Spring Onion Pakoda, here and today it’s time for Spring Onion Paratha recipe.
I have soaked kasoori methi for 5-10 mins and added. This extracts more flavour. For curries, we don’t do this as while boiling flavour comes out, Spring onion and other spices quantity you can plus or minus .
