Harey Pyaz aur Aloo Ke Subzi

Haray Pyaz aur Aloo ke Subzi is a very easy and quick preparation of potatoes. As the name suggests its made with harey pyaz or spring onions and potatoes.

"Harey Pyaz aur Aloo Ke Subzi"
Its a very easy and quick dish which is made during the winter months when fresh green onions are available in abundance.
The recipe which I am sharing here is from my MIL's kitchen, its super easy and can be made in 20 minutes. Goes well with Chapatis or Parathas and Hari mirchi ka achar and a great option for packed lunch to school or office too.


Aloo / Potato - 2 large
Harey Pyaz / Onion greens, chopped - 3 cups
Whole red chili - 1 broken into half
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Slat to taste
Mustard oil - 2 tablespoon


Wash, peal and cut the potatoes lengthwise into quarters and then cut them into approximately half inch slices. Place the chopped pototaoes into water until you are ready to cook. This will stop them from browning.

Clean, wash and chop off the ends of the green onion's, pat dry them with a kitchen towel and then finely chop them.

Heat 2 tablespoons of mustard oil in a Kadhai until smoking point. Turn off the heat and let it rest for 2 minutes. Once again place the kadhai on to medium heat and add the red broken red chilies, as soon as they start to turn brown add the chopped potatoes and fry.

Add the coriander powder, turmeric and continue to cook on medium flame, add a table spoon or two of water, cover and cook until the potatoes are done and a spoon can easily cut through the potatoes. Add the chopped green onions and mix well.

Add salt and mix well, within moments you will notice that the onion greens have started to loose there moisture and are whilting. Cook for a minute or two and turn off the flame.

Serve Harey Pyaz aur Aloo ke Subzi with chapaties,or Paratha along with Hari mirchi ka achar


I have used Mustard oil for cooking this subzi as that's how its cooked in our home, however you could replace it with any cooking oil which you use.
I used raw potatoes for preparing this dish but if you have boiled potatoes you can use them as well. Somehow i feel its much easier to cook it this way as it also ensures that the masalas are cooked well.
Don't overcook once you have added the green onion as it will loose its flavor.
