Onion Chutney



Onion chutney is a spicy condiment made from onions, spices, and other ingredients. It is popular in South India and is often served with dosas, idlis, and other traditional dishes. It can also be used as a dip for other snacks. The ingredients used to make onion chutney vary from region to region, but typically include onions, garlic, ginger, chilies, tamarind, and other spices. The onions are usually cooked until they are soft and then blended with the other ingredients to create a thick, flavorful paste. Onion chutney can be served either hot or cold and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week.
