A question about a recipe: Crunchy Coconut Corn Fritters

I have a question about the ingredient "¼ cup scallions, thinly sliced" on the recipe "Crunchy Coconut Corn Fritters" from aliyaleekong. Is it possible to replace the scallions with onion powder- i really want to make these for my family but they wont touch anything that has an actual onion/scallion in it. suggestions?

I vote for the "teeny teeny bits" option. By the time they're cooked, they'll be virtually invisible, but the flavor will be there. Just tell them they're bits of ginger.

Ginger would be an interesting addition .Def add a sprinkle or two of onion powder if they like the flavor. BTW if they love the flavor of onions, I am sure you have tried mincing them into really teeeny teeeny bits? And they were still able to discern them?

But they love the flavor of the onions- normally i cook with them and then just pick them out of the food i serve them. But I will try without for the first batch. maybe add some ginger instead.

I wouldn't replace it with onion powder. If no one in the family will eat onions - just leave them out
