Sauteed Onion Chutney

Hope you might have tried a number of side dishes to take with dosa idli etc., both from what you already cook and from the website. Of all it is very easy to prepare onion chutney as it is just a matter of blending the ingredients. But most of us hate the bad breath after consuming raw onion. We feel uncomfortable to talk face to face with friends, colleagues etc. Still we can’t avoid onion chutney just for that silly reason. However we love to prepare it for two reasons

1) it is tasty and irresistible.

2) it is very easy to prepare it, a time saving delicacy.

In-fact it had just given my aunt new idea to prepare sautéed onion which is even tastier than the usual red onion chutney. Of course it is really easy to prepare, even teenage kids can prepare it and’s so tasty.

  • You can also use 1 tsp of chilli powder instead of, fried dry red chillies. But it is suggested to use dried chillies instead of chilli powder for better taste.
  • Use tender curry leaves (preferably farm fresh), so that you can consume it along.
  • If you want the chutney in a gravy consistency, add the water used for soaking tamarind as required at stage 3.
