ONION CHUTNEY

Onion chutney was introduced to me when my mom was here. Very long back i learnt the recipe of vengaya thogaiyal recipe from my mami and tried it few times at home too. But this onion chutney i have never tried or tasted. When i posted the recipe of WHEAT DOSA Ii placed this onion chutney near by the dosa. Many readers asked the recipe of that. So i made this vengaya chutney last week for idlis. Try out this easy onion chutney (without coconut).
