Onion Chutney and Garlic chutney are my fav and can live with it for days together. This is another no tomato no coconut chutney and I love it with hot soft idlis or with onion uthapam. Amma makes another version of onion chutney which is more thokku kind,will post that too later.

My Notes:

  • Adjust red chillies according to your spice level. 
  • Use small onions for best results but if you are out of stock and planning to make this chutney go ahead with 1 cup chopped big onion.
  • Use gingelly oil else replace with normal cooking oil.

  17. Hi Sharmilee,
    I am new to cooking and eager to try this chutney. I have a doubt regarding the tamarind. Is it ok to add readymade tamarind paste such as Mother's tamarind paste. Or should I soak the tamarind in water and then add the extract/ water?
