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

Indian Breakfast

  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.2-onion-chutney

Notes
    • You can grind bit coarse too.
    • 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.
 
               Serve with idli or best with godhuma dosai or else like me Nei podi dosai. Tastes heaven!

  36. 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.
