How to Cut Spring Onions
Screenshot (not the actual video): How to cut spring onions for food garnishing

Here is a video tutorial on how to cut spring onions for food garnishing. This is a request from reader Jonie (sorry it took me soooo long to make it happen) who asked in my steamed tofu with minced meat recipe, how I made the spring onions curly wily. I have made a short video showing how it is done, along with 3 other basic techniques for cutting spring onions, i.e, finely chopped, flower-shaped & slanted. Please pardon my noob knife skills and hope these simple tips will come in handy for you in the kitchen. Thanks to B for shooting & editing the video. Look out for more cooking videos with full cooking video recipes coming soon.
