Onion chutney

Our food looks awfully dull with the usual  or the not so desirable accompaniments. Tasty side dishes makes the meal interesting and palatable. Here is another kind of chutney with onion that you can prepare with dosa or chapati.

Ingredients :

  • fresh grated coconut 1 bowl
  • onions 2
  • green chillies 5
  • coriander leaves  a small quantity
  • salt to taste
  • tamarind pulp 1 tsp
  • dalia split 1 tbsp

For the seasoning :

  • oil  2 tsp
  • mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
  • asafoetida 1/4 tsp
  • turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
  • a few curry leaves 
  • urad dal 1/2 tsp
