SPRING ONION BHUTHI

SPRING ONION BHUTHI

A bhuthi is a semi-dry dish we make with a coconut-masala base. It can be made out of mushrooms, gherkins, and onions, among other vegetables. I have elsewhere in the blog, my recipe for Tendle Bhuthi made out of gherkins.

Today, I share my recipe for making a bhuthi out of Spring Onions. This serves as an accompaniment to the main meal.





Ingredients:
  • Spring Onions, 1 bunch
  • Fresh Coconut Gratings, 1/2 cup
  • Tamarind, a small piece
  • Roasted Byadgi Red Chillies, 3-4
  • Coriander Seeds, 1 tsp  ( Roasting not required) 
  • Onion, medium-sized,1
  • Oil, 1 tbsp
  • Salt, to taste

Method:

Wash and chop the spring onions, including the bulbs
Wash and chop the onion
In a blender, grind together coconut gratings, roasted red chillies, tamarind, coriander seeds, using a little water, to a paste. Keep aside.
In a thick bottomed kadhai, add oil. When the oil gets heated, add chopped onion and fry till it becomes transparent 
Add the chopped spring onions, salt and cook covered on low flame till done
Now add the ground paste and fry till the masala gets fully blended with the mixture of onion and spring onion.
Serve as a side dish with the main meal.
