This is a requested recipe from my good friend and brother who is becoming a dad soon. Potato and Spring Onions is great combination that I have never made, after seeing this request I immediately made this recipe the next day as the ingredients are readily available in my pantry, but it took me a while to post the recipe. Hope this Dad-to-be is still craving for this dish.... Here is the recipe, Njoy!

  7. Taste and adjust all the seasonings, finally add the freshly squeezed lime juice for the extra twist. 

Transfer to Serving bowl and serve hot with white rice. VJ loved this quick fix and the new taste of potato that spring onion gave. With left over curry the next day I made Aloo Paratha, which will be coming next..
