I always look for something to easy to cook in summers so that I don’t have to stand in the kitchen for a long time. I can actually spend the whole summer just sipping on some cool drinks and lying lazily in my bed 🙂 ..It is just a wish but we do have to carry out our daily chores. This is an easy recipe to make some Onion chutney made with small onion/ Shallots.
Fry some onion shallots and make a delicious and easy Onion chutney! I have served this chutney with ghee roast dosa. You can serve with idli, uttapam, upma too.
- 1 cup Onion shallots (peeled and roughly chopped)
- 1/2 cup freshly grated coconut
- 1 sprig Curry leaves
- 2 green chillies
- 2 tbsp Roasted gram/pottukadalai
- 1/8 tsp Asafoetida/hing
- 2 tsp Sesame Oil
- 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
- Salt to taste
Heat 1 tsp oil in a frying pan and add onion shallots. Stir fry.
When onions turn light golden brown, add green chillies and curry leaves and stir for a minute.
Transfer the content in a bowl and keep it aside and let it cool down completely.
Add stir fried onions in your food processor with roasted gram, freshly grated coconut and blitz it. You can add little water to coarsely grind it.
Transfer it into a bowl and add salt to taste and mix well.
Add 1 tsp oil in a small frying pan and add mustard seeds. When mustard seeds crackle, add asafoetida and add this tempering into the chutney.
