Aloo Peyanjkoli Bhaja/Stir fry of Potatoes and Onion flower stalks

I make stir fries of different veggies regularly at home to eat with dal and rice. This is one of them. Peyanjkoli/ Onion flower stalks is a seasonal veggie, found in winter-spring mostly, we’re still getting fresh bunches of this green goodness in our local markets.  And this Aloo Peyanjkoli Bhaja is one of our favourite dishes among many other things what I make with Peyanjkoli. The recipe is simple, needs very basic ingredients and can be cooked in a jiffy.
