ONION CHUTNEY...a perfect accompaniment !

I love chutneys! Be it coconut chutney,tomato n' onion chutney ,peanut chutney ...anything! I love to dip my crisp, heavily ghee-laden dosa in them and I can go on munching all day long! This is a perfect chutney to kick start or even wind up your day. The tanginess of the tamarind ,the pungent taste of the onions and the spice from the chillies will leave you craving for more!

This is a short and sweet post, because I am quite held up these days with some work at home. So, that explains why I have just 2 photographs for this post. Sometimes I have my posts loaded with pictures and some have very few. It all depends on the time I have at hand, then. I wanted to click more, but time didn't permit me to do it. Maybe, next time ;-)


ONION CHUTNEY
My own recipe


Ingredients
Red onions- 3 medium , chopped roughly
Dry red chillies-5, broken up
Tamarind paste/pulp- 1 -1 1/4 tsp (to your taste)
Salt-to taste
Urad dal- 1 tsp
Oil-3 tsp


Method:

  • Heat a pan, add in the roughly chopped onions and pan fry them (without oil) till they turn light brown.
  • In the same pan, our 1 tsp of oil and add in the broken dried red chillies and fry for 30 secs.
  • Grind the cooled onions, dried red chillies, tamarind and salt together to a fine paste.
  • Heat a pan, add in 2 tsp of oil, add in the urad dal and let it brown.
  • Add in the ground paste and cook for 2-3 mins.
  • Check for salt.
  • Serve with hot ghee dosa/idli.
Verdict: We both love it! Period.
