Patichya Kandyachi Peeth Perun Bhaji (Spring Onions cooked with Chickpea flour)

This Spring Onion recipe is the easiest to make. This a regular sabzi cooked in a Maharashtrian home.The name can be a bit of a tongue twister for Non-Maharashtrians. Its easy to make with just 2 main ingredients and with other regular ingredients from your kitchen. H enjoys eating this  traditional sabzi.
