Onion Chutney(Simple version)

My mum makes this chutney more that twice in a week..Because it is so simple to make..It requires only onion and nothing else..

I like to caramelize the onion and they make it into a paste..So that you can get the real sweetness of onions and it gives the chutney a nice colour..

Onion chutney is best served with hot idlis or dosa...And it makes a perfect spread for sandwiches...

So hope you try this...Off you go..


Onion- ½ kg sliced
Tamarind paste-1 tblspn
Chilli powder-1 tsp
Coriander powder/Malli podi-1 tblspn
Garlic-6 cloves
Oil-1 tblspn
Salt to taste

For Tempering:

Oil-1 tblspn
Mustard seeds/Kaduku-1 tsp
Cumin seeds/Jeerakam-1 tsp
Dry Red chilli-1


Heat oil in a kadai..Add in onions and sprinkle it with salt..

Cook till the onions gets caramelized and golden...

Add in garlic,chilli powder,coriander powder and tamarind paste and cook for 1 min..

Now let this cool a little...Put this in a blender and make into a fine puree.Pour this into a bowl..

Now make the tempering by heating oil and add in mustard,cumin and dry red chilli..

Pour this tadka over the chutney and mix well..

Serve this with dosa or idli..
