Chicken Spring onion

Hello dear readers. I’m back after a short break . Today I’m going to share an interesting chicken recipe. Last week my sister told me that she tasted chicken spring onion cooked by my aunt Mrs Neeta Nayak and it tasted finger licking good. I was fortunate to taste it this week and ask her the recipe . Yes, she had cooked specially for us to taste and she was generous enough to share the recipe as usual. Do you’ll remember Chicken Ibrosi recipe which I had shared recently. She’s the same aunt of ours. She came across this recipe in a cooking show and she tried it. I tried this recipe with eye ball measurement and it came out excellent. I also added tomatoes and lime  to balance the taste even though the recipe didn’t call for it. The spring onion which we get in Mangalore does not contain onion bulbs so I washed and used the tender shoots above the roots.
