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.
