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.

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 for this

Potatoes and Green Onions – Instant Pot Aloo Curry?

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.

Peas- I have used frozen peas. There is no need to thaw them.
