This chutney is one of the chutneys I make when there are no more veggies left out for me to make any curry or sambar. The ingredients required are very less in number and commonly available in our kitchen counters and the best part is you can have this with dosa, idli, chapati or even Toasted bread. Onion chutney is my DH's all time favourite and mine too.
All you need is
Onion 2 (medium) cubed
Red chillies 3-4 broken
Salt as required
Tamarind 1 small marble sized
Turmeric 1 Tsp
Oil 2 Tbsp
Oil 1 Tsp
mustard 1/2 Tsp
Black Gram Dhall/urad dhall 1 Tsp
Curry leaves few
Heat 2 Tbsp oil add Red chillies and saute for 30 sec on a medium flame
Add Onions, salt, tamarind and saute till onions change colour to pink
Add turmeric and turn off the flame
Once it comes to room temperature grind it in a mixie and Transfer it to serving bowl.
Heat oil and add all to temper items one by one.
You can use ghee also for tempering.
2 cloves of garlic can also be added.
