Spring Onion Rice/Vengaya Thal Sadham

I often overbuy stuff when I just see them fresh or after a long time especially veggies. This happened a week ago when i went for a casual veggie pick up and saw these blooming strands of spring onion or scallions stand there fresh in the store.  I picked up 1 big bundle and ended up making all fried rice varieties the whole week. Still a lot was left over and i didn’t want to waste them hence they all found their way into this rice where they just shone beautifully. It’s a perfect lunch box dish that can be made in less than 15 minutes if the rice is ready.

Spring onions-2 cups, cleaned and chopped fine
Cooked Rice-1 cup
Garlic -6 fat cloves, sliced
Pepper powder-1 tsp
Soy Sauce-1 tsp
Salt- as needed
Sesame oil/Olive oil-2 tsp
How It Happened:
1. Heat oil in a pan, add the sliced garlic and fry until brown.
2. Add the chopped spring onions and fry until they wilt in medium flame.
3. Add the cooked rice and mix once.

4. Add soy sauce, pepper powder and salt and mix well.
5. Switch off the flame and serve hot with sauce.
* You can add chopped onions too but i have kept it just plain and simple.
* I have used basmati rice you can use short grain rice too. Just make sure you cook them such that the grains remain separate.
