Spring Onion Curry/Gojju


Hello eveyone….I am back from chicago, had very nice time there. Visited Devon avenue and got lots of groceries. Thanks to all of you who suggested the place.

Last week when I was talking over the phone, my cousine mentioned about spring onion curry she made that day. In last 5 years living here I had brought spring onions few times but didnot used for cooking, just used as garnish on noodles. So after talking to her, got the recipe and did try it for the first time. I was very nice,light onion taste with little sourness from tomato.

So here is the recipe,


2 bunch of spring onion.

1 medium size tomato


1tsp of sambhar powder (or any curry powder)

1tsp of jaggery or brown sugar

1/2 tsp of tamrind paste or about 2tsp juice of tamarind soaked in water

salt as per taste

To garnish fresh coconut and few spring onion( this is optional)

1tsp of oil and mustard seeds for seasoning.

Method :

1. Heat a tsp of oil, when hot add mustard seeds. When it starts to pop add veggies.

2. Saute it for few minutes( both tomato and sp onion take less time to cook). Than add all the spices. Add water and let it cook for 10 min or so.

3. Taste it to make sure all the spice and salt are well adjusted. Finaly garnish with coconut and few sp onions.

4. Tastes good with chapathis


Enjoy !

    Hi Asha,

    Welcome back. I love Devon Street. I cannot stop eating nor shopping when we go there. Glad u had a good time in Chicago!

    What a delicious, colorful curry. I am always looking for new curries for chapathis. We eat chapathis almost every night for dinner. So next time I remember to buy spring onions (soon hopefully) I will give this recipe a try.

    Hi Madhu,
    I’ve been to your blog many times but have never left a comment….I just read an older post regarding your town in Alaska….I live in Newfoundland, which is also known for its bitter winters and isolated areas…though we are lucky to have some Indian families here…but I do remember when there wasn’t as much here….I wish you all the best to you and your family. Take care.


    Hello Trupthi, welcome to my blog and thank you for taking time to comment. As soon as I saw that you are from Newfoundland I looked on internet to see where you live. Its similar to place we live. How about you have any indian grocery stores near you ? write some more about your life stlye when you get time. Thanks for sharing…..

    Madhu, your spring onion curry is on our menu to night for chappathi…Thanks for sharing..:)

    It tastes wonderful with chapathis Lera. I bet you get more tastier spring onions there in B’lore. Let me know how you liked  it.

    Hi Madhu,
    We don’t have a full fledged Indian grocery store here but a local Indian Physician has collaborated with a grocery chain here that brings us our daals, rices, frozen veggies and the like at one of the main stores…..The city I now live in St.John’s has seen many Indian families move here recently…and it is indeed growing..I looked up your town of Barrow on Google and i was amazed…it is certainly isolated. The only way I use to keep my sanity years ago when I was Single, was to read a lot of good books and also watch Indian movies, and of course, cook. I also listen to a lot of Indian music…and having such Indian influences around me helped a lot…which is about the only thing you can do when there is blowing snow outside and the temp is always in the negatives!
    Now that I have moved to St.John’s, I have my 2 small kids that keep me busy. I commend your strength, and by choosing to blog, you’ve already demonstrated that you won’t let the isolation of your community affect you. Internet and blogging is a great way to be in touch. I wish you a lot of luck…Come visit us in Newfoundland sometime.
