Spring Onion Spinach Sabzi – Lunch Recipe – Green Leafy Vegetable

Nutritionally, Spring Green Onions have a combination of the benefits of onions and greens. They are an excellent source of vitamin K and vitamin C, and a very good source of vitamin A too. Spring onions can be added to dal and make it a much tastier dish. Earlier, I posted spring green onion recipes – Spring onion kadhi and spring onion with mushroom.

This time I tried Bhurji recipe with spring onions and spinach. This green leafy vegetable is made up of 92% water, making it especially beneficial in keeping you hydrated. Spinach is also rich in magnesium, potassium, and B-vitamins, all of which are known to increase energy.
