Green Garlic & Roti Crumbs

I am sure you all must be wondering what this is about, well it is a traditional winter dish amongst the Gujerathi community, and it falls into the comfort food bracket. The green garlic used here looks very much like spring onions, however garlic leaves are flat and not tubular like the spring onions. They are available at green grocers that stock a variety of Indian vegetables or you can get it at chinese vegetable shops or you could just use garlic chives from woolies and add a bit of fresh garlic to get the extra garlic flavour. 

Green Garlic with Roti Crumbs

375ml chopped green garlic

5ml freshly chopped garlic

20ml butter or ghee

375ml roti crumbs (or you can use toasted bread crumbs)

7ml salt


  • Heat butter or ghee on medium heat in a medium size pan and add the chopped green garlic and garlic and allow to fry for a few minutes or until the green garlic starts to wilt
  • Add the roti or bread crumbs and mix throughly cover the pan and turn the heat off and allow to rest for about 5minutes
  • Season with salt and serve warm in little bowls.

    Hi Usha – this recipe is so interesting. It never ceases to amaze me how the dishes of different countries overlaps – this is very similar to a pasta dish that is made with garlic and bread crumbs – parsley and olive oil. The cullinary world really is quite a small world. Have a great weekend xxxx janxxxxx
