Onion Chutney!

Sharing is caring!

This is a very simple chutney but so tasty I couldn’t believe till I actually had and also came back to prepare at home. Whenever this is made along with dosa or Idli, I never liked to eat it but somehow that day I just wanted to see how it would taste. It was something out of the world. You should try this and enjoy!

Ingredients Needed:

Onions – 2 medium
Tomatoes – 1 medium
Red Chillies – 5 nos
Urud Dal – 2 tbsps
Hing / Asofotedia – a pinch


Mustard + Urud Dal – 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves few
Hing / Asofotedia – a pinch

Method to prepare:

Chop Onions and tomatoes to fine pieces.

Heat a kadai with 1 tbsp Oil. Once its hot, add Hing. Then roast red chilies, Urud dal, Onions and tomatoes separately.

Once its cool, run it in the mixer till the Urud dal is ground. Add little water to get a liquid form.

Season this with mustard and curry leaves. If you prefer add hing.

I added little more tomatoes the first time. That was also very tasty. But since this is called onion chutney, makes sense to have more of Onions!
