onion-chutney-side-dish
Onion Chutney recipe comes to rescue when there is no tomato or coconut in stock. My mom makes often, MIL too makes the same way. Very simple yet spicy and flavourful. Using small onion (chinna vengayam) is best for this chutney. Top with sesame oil and serve as side dish for idli or any dosa. So here you go for chutney recipe…Cool

Onion chutney (Vengaya chutney) recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Indian  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast (Side dish)
Prep Time: 5 mins    |  Cook time: 10 mins    Serves: 3

Ingredients

Small onion(shallots), Chopped - 3/4 cup

Red chillies - 5

Tamarind - 2 pinches

Salt - 3/4 tsp


To Temper

Oil - 2 tsp

Mustard - 3/4 tsp

Urad dal - 1 tsp

Curry leaves - 1 sprig


Method

  1. In a kadai add a tsp of oil fry red chillies and add peeled chopped small onion and fry until golden spots appear here and there. Cool down and grind with little water,tamarind and salt. Onion chutney recipe step 1
  2. Heat oil in kadai and temper with the items given under ‘To temper’ table and pour the ground mix with little more water. (1/8 cup) Immediately switch off the stove and give a stir.Onion chutney recipe step 2

Notes
    • To avoid bitterness, the tamarind and spice must be balanced. 
    • You can first grind red chillies and then add onion to grind it coarsely. This will avoid bitter taste if at all you have that problem. 
    • If you want you can add 2 tblsp of coconut along with this.
    • If you want, you can just fry the onion and add red chilli powder instead using the whole ones. This will give a bright red chutney. But tastes different 
    • The colour of mine is deep brown as I have fried my chillies dark and even fried onions until its golden. I used food processor for grinding.

Serve with idli or best with godhuma dosai or else like me Nei podi dosai. Tastes heaven!

  35. Had been to ur site quite recently and have tried a couple of recipes. Very good site with detailed steps and accompanying photographs which compel one to try the recipes immediately ;). btw, how do u get this brownish color for the chutney? I tried the same and ended up with a pinkish color.

    1. Hi, thanks for your compliments :)
      If you see my chillies, its fried until smoky deep red or almost black. So it brings that brown colour. The colour depends how you roast the chilli and how you grind. I used my blender,it will not grind it smooth like our mixie... it could also be a reason.
