Onion Chutney is another wonderful South Indian Chutney Variety that goes well with Idli / dosa.  We have many different varieties of chutney. Generally I make onion chutney often than other varieties as i am a spice lover. There is a slight variation in this recipe, I have used baby onions instead of the whole onions. We can also use whole onions but shallots always has a special and unique taste.

For onion chutney, we can add a tomato or a pinch of tamarind to induce a little tanginess. My MIL used to add a tomato, but I always prefer to add tamarind. Both of variations tastes awesome and they are a perfect accompaniment for Idli / dosa. Try this version of Onion chutney (Vengaya Chutney) and share your comments!
