  7. hi..Spinach sabzi is a very good idea to have more of iron in a tasty way. I have 2 questions- Will spring onion sabzi go the same way as this one? and How do you decide on the cooking oil?

  8. @ garima Being health conscious I always do all my cooking in light olive oil except for deep frying but you can use sunflower oil its healthy too.

  9. @ garima I think you can cook spring onions in the same way but I would prefer to add another veg with it such as peas to give it more texture.
