Spring onions are a very popular vegetable and they come in different varieties including white, yellow and red. These tender onion bulbs are great in taste and also rich in nutrients. From a long time spring onions have been used in Chinese traditional medicines. Like onions spring onions are also high in sulfur. High amounts of sulfur provide many health benefits. These tender onions are low in calorie. This Spring Onion thokku is one way to include this nutritional rich green in our daily diet.

One of my close friend shared this recipe with me. She make this thokku atleast once a week. She explained me about the procedure and I was tempted to make it immediately. The thokku tastes so awesome and it goes well with Dosa/Idli and even with Roti. We can also use it as a pickle for Curd Rice. You can also try Spring Onion Sambar and Spring Onion Poriyal.
