Mint Onion chutney recipe with video
Mint onion chutney, without coconut, a South Indian chutney made with small onions and mint, pairs well with idli, dosa and even chapati too. I have already posted onion chutney recipe, this is similar to that with the addition of mint leaves. Even a small variation in the ingredients gives a very nice twist and change in the taste. We always break our head as what chutney to make for idli dosa, though we know many varieties of chutney still look for new ones. This Mint Onion chutney is a tasty mint flavored chutney pairs well with Idli dosa and also for chapati too. Check out my full collection of Side dish for IDLI DOSA.
