Spring Onion Tomato Curry

Those were the days that we were preparing for GRE exam, and when ever we get some time we used to learn word lists. We even used to learn the world lists while we travel to college (40 min long journey) on the bus. Some times, some of us just get together and ask the meanings of these unusual words to test our knowledge which boosts our confidence levels for the exam. ;-) as I am the non-local there, some of my friends always take me to their home for a quick snack or something during those preparatory days. Now you know where this is going..... Yes, it is not related to GRE, but it is related to those quick snacks that I am talking about. Now I can see that relief look on your face ;-)

Spring Onion Tomato Curry
That day my friend's mom insisted me to have Dosa as a quick snack, that is the usual item we all know, but she served that with this Yummy Spring Onion Tomato Curry, which is unusual to me and made me remember that taste and the special combination until today. Until then I have always seen my mom using this herb in soups or chineese fried rice or for garnish or to give that green look to some curries. But after this incident, I am using this herb in most of the curries as a main ingredient. (Thanks for the nice snack and super recipe, Aunty!!!)

Till now, I remember those fun days of preparing Word Lists and this Curry taste. For all, who wanted to try this simple, yet special combination, here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Spring Onion - 1 bunch
Red Onion - 2 Tbsp
Cluster Tomato - 2 medium
Curry leaves - 5 to 6
Green Chili - 3
Garlic - 4 to 5
Oil - 2 Tbsp
salt - 1 tsp (per your taste)
turmeric powder - 1 tsp


  1. Heat the Oil in Kadai, and add 1 tsp of Chana Dal, Urad Dal, Cumin Seeds. Once they start turning brown add, mustard seeds and as they splutter add the Curry leaves.
  2. Peel the Garlic Cloves and Crush them and add to the tempering, and then add turmeric powder.
  3. After 2 min, add the green chili slices and red onion slices. Add the salt and let the onions saute for 2 min.
  4. Now Add the chopped tomato and close the lid, let them cook for 3 min.
  5. Then add the chopped Spring Onion to the Pan. And let it cook for 5 min, along with the tomato.
  6. Turn off the heat and Transfer to serving bowl.

The cluster tomatoes dominated the spring onions here in my curry...

Ta Daaa, yummy Spring Onion and Tomato Curry is ready in minutes. Now Serve this with Hot and Crispy Dosa.  That Crispy Dosa and this tangy and spicy curry is Toung Tickling for sure. OMG, I love this combination, if you don't believe me, then you should try this, you will say the same....

I have served this with Rice and Chapati also. But the best combination and taste is when you serve with Crisp Dosa (Rice Crepes).

This recipe goes to 'Only - Curries' event hosted by Janaki's Kitchen and announced by Pari @ Foodelicious.

Happy Currying, until we meet here again
