Spring Onions with potatoes

Spring Onions add to this highly aromatic and flavourful dish

I love cooking with simple ingredients and there’s nothing simpler than the humble potato which is a staple mainstay in many homes.
This dish to me is really exciting and always welcomed particularly with parathas. I thoroughly enjoy eating this frequently instead of meat or fish when cooked!

I cooked mine quite spicy but adjust the heat/chilli to your own taste…

It gets finished in In no time in my home!
