Nutrition nuggets: Onions have been shown to have a significant blood sugar-lowering action and have historically been used to treat asthma. In addition, they are known to possess healing properties for major diseases such as atherosclerosis, diabetes, and cancer. Onions are also a very good source of vitamins C and B6, biotin, chromium, and dietary fiber.


  1. Put the spring onions and onion in a large bowl of iced water and soak for at least 5 mins (or up to 2 hrs) in the fridge, until the spring onions curl up.
  2. When ready to serve, drain well, spin in a salad spinner or pat dry, then transfer to a medium bowl. Add the chili pepper, sesame oil, chilly flakes, sesame seed and a pinch of salt, then toss to coat. Serve immediately.
