ody Raw onion chutney

Raw onion chutney

            Raw onion chutney is my appa's favorite one. whenever i am in my hometown, i used to prepare this chutney using ammikal. Raw onion chutney and dosai is my favorite. After marriage, i like variation of this chutney prepared by my MIL. I just love the taste of that chutney. I used to ask her to prepare this chutney for next day breakfast before coming to hometown. ( You know ,i used to have extra dosa and idli when i have it with this chutney). Since some don't like to eat raw onion because it gives bad smell. when you think about yummy food ,you shouldn't think about this. I just get some mouth freshener and will swallow idli's,paniyaram,some dosa's (he he he) with yummy tasty chutney.

Big red onion - 1
Red chilli powder - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves - 2 tbsp
Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
Tamarind - 1/2 gooseberry size
Sugar - a pinch
Salt - as per taste
Garlic - very small piece

* Soak tamarind in little water.
* Chop onion in big chunks.

                      In a food processor,add chopped onion,garlic,red chilli powder and salt. Grind  it in pulse mode.Once the onion is slightly crushed,now add soaked tamarind pulp,curry leaves ,coriander leaves and sugar.Grind till the onion is grind-ed coarsely .( I like coarse texture for this chutney,if not can add little water and grind to smooth paste).That's it. Serve along with dosa or paniyaram.

* My Mil used to add little warm oil on top of this chutney to give a different taste( pref coconut oil).
* Small onion give very good taste than big onion.(In US, small onions are bit costly so i used to prepare using big red onion)
* White and yellow onion don't give exact taste like this.
* Instead of red chilli powder, we can also use dry red chilli.
