    Onion chutney preparation steps

    Step 01

    Grind onion,garlic and tamarind to a smooth fine paste.

    Step 02

    Heat coconut oil in a pan.Add chilli powder(flame should be low or you can switch off the flame.Otherwise the chilli powder may burn)

    Step 03

    Add onion paste. Add salt and mix well.

    Step 04

    Cook the chutney for 4-5 minute in low flame.

    Step 05

    When oil starts coming out of the chutney,switch off the flame(It will take around 10 minutes to make this chutney).


    1. You can also use any oil for making this chutney but nothing beats coconut oil.
    2. Take care of the heat of oil when you add chilli powder. If you are making this chutney first time,better switch off the flame when it is hot and add chilli powder. Again switch on and add onion tomato paste(First time I did like this)
