onion chutney vengaya chutney recipe

Onion chutney is a great accompaniment to idli, dosa, upma and even appams. It is very common in all South Indian homes. I make this onion chutney for dosas and idlis once in a week. I love this chutney even as a spread for sandwich.Though I have used pearl onions, you can use big onions also to prepare this chutney. 


Tomato - 2
Pearl onion - 15 to 20
Red chilli - 4
Tamarind - one gooseberry size
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Urad dal - 1tsp
Oil for seasoning
Salt for taste
Curry leaves - 1 leaflet


Peel the outer skin of thr pearl onion and chop the tomato.

Heat a pan and add oil.
Once oil hot, add mustard seeds and urad dal.

Once the mustard seeds start splutter, add onion and fry it. Once onion got translucent, add red chilli, tamarind and fry it.
After a minute, add chopped tomato.

Remove these fried mix and cool down. After that,put this mix into a blender and make it to smooth paste.
Now again heat a spoon of oil and add mustard seeds and curry leaves and fry it. Add ground paste once mustard starts splutter.

Now the tasty chutney is ready.
