  • Transfer to a serving bowl and spread the rest of spring onions on top and serve hot.


  1. Don’t over-boil the florets in boiling water. Boil only for 5-7 minutes as they will be properly cooked while frying. Over boiling can result in mashing of florets.
  2. For healthier version of this, you can use air-fried cauliflower.
