Peyazkoli Diye Aloor Torkari

Did you guys see Big Boss Season 6? I believe so far it's one of the most interesting Big Boss seasons ever. Though the show became a lot of more entertaining after Imam's entry and his 'nautanki' (drama) shot up the TRP rates all-time high, he was not a winning material and I am happy that he didn't win at the end. There were a lot of my friends totally gaga over Imam's madness, stubbornly having wanted him to win and if anyone reasoned against Imam why he should not win, they would start a severe argument from thereon in Imam's favour. Now they are all sulking with Imam's loss, unable to accept Urvashi as a winner. So lots of depressing status messages with unhappy comments are getting published throughout the day on FB walls and although I am enjoying reading them, but at times I feel they are just going overboard. A game is a game; it should be taken with a game spirit. Imam definitely was very nasty and rude to other inmates. His winning would have condoned nastiness sending out a wrong message to all. 

The smell of fresh peyazkoli is so refreshing na ? I have two back to back recipes involving peyazkoli. One is this delicious yet simple Peyazkoli Aloo preparation that sends a beautiful aroma wafting up through the house when it is in the making; another is a fish preparation which I would post sometime later after I am done with sorting out the snaps.

Ingredients:                                             Cooking time: 20 minutes
ü  1 cup of peyazkoli or spring onion
ü  2 large potatoes (chopped into small size cubes)
ü  5-6 green chillies (chopped)
ü  1 tsp turmeric powder
ü  2 tbsp peanuts
ü  Salt to taste
ü  2 tsp sugar
ü  1/2 tsp kalo jeera or nigella seeds
ü  White oil for cooking
1) Heat oil in a wok. When oil turns hot, add kalo jeera and wait till it crackles.
2) Toss the potatoes in. Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add peyazkoli or spring onion, turmeric powder, peanuts, green chillies, salt and sugar. Mix in all the ingredients and cook covered on medium low heat for 3 minutes.
3) Add 2 tbsp of water and cook covered till potatoes are tender.
4) Serve hot with Beans Luchi. They go awesome together like oil and ghee.
