Spring Onion Curry with Tomatoes is another simple and easy to cook dish. When you buy spring onions from the market, just place the lower part of the spring onions with the roots in a cup of water. You will get fresh spring onions in days that you can keep using to make dishes like this. Just cut the spring onion very close to the root and put back in water to regrow again! This particular dish goes very well with Roti, Rice etc. You can also spread this on Dosas and serve as a tasty twist on your regular Dosa. You can also stuff it in between breads and serve as a tasty sandwich.
