My family LOVES eating potatoes. I am always on the lookout for fast, good potato recipes that not only look good but also taste great. With the Instant Pot it’s SUPER easy to do that, and I love how fast it is to cook potatoes.

What are green onions?

Green onions, spring onions, or scallions are thin onions with white bases and edible green tops. They’re found in every grocery store. They can be eaten raw or cooked briefly. When buying green onions, select bunches that have firm white bases and crisp, bright green tops. They last in the refrigerator for about 5 days.

How do I chop green onions for Potatoes and Green Onions – Instant Pot Aloo Curry recipe ?

Rinse onions under cool tap water and remove any outer layers that look wilted, slimy or bad. Lay several onions on a cutting surface. Using a knife, chop off the root end and about 2 inches from the tough top part of the green end. Trim about 2 inches from the green tops. Next chop the green onions cut crosswise into thin slices, about 1/8-inch thick. You can adjust the size according to your needs.

What kind of potatoes do I need?

I have used small to medium sized Yukon golden potatoes. Alternatively, you can also make these with red potatoes. The key is that the potatoes need to be diced small (1/2 to 1-inch cubes). Please do not chop them larger than 1 inch or else they will not cook well and will have a bite to them.
