Coriander Onion Chutney for T&T

When I saw this chutney on Priya's blog, I knew I had to have this and lucky me T&T was also announced around the same time. So I went ahead and made this.
Its a very easy chutney to make and goes good with all kinds of dosas, idlis and even with hot rice.
This chutney doesn't have the raw onion taste since it cooked a little before making the chutney, so people who don't like the taste of raw onions, like me, don't have to worry. :))

This Month Priya's Blog Priya's Easy N Tasty Recipes is up for T&T which is being hosted by PJ of Seduce Your Tastebuds...., brainchild of Zlamushka and taken over by Lakshmi.

Only change I made was adding few extra green chillies cos we like it spicy!!

Recipe Source

Changes I made cos we like it spicy -

used extra 3 green chillies
didnot extract tamarind pulp, but used tamarind directly and dropped it in to be ground along with rest of the grindable (is that a word) ingredients.

Few drops of oil
1/2 cup coriander leaves
1 big onion, roughly chopped
3 tbsp Urad daal
1 tbsp chana daal
3 dry red chillies
3 green chillies
a small gooseberry size tamarind
2 tbsp grated dry coconut

For Tempering:

1/2 tsp mustard seeds + urad daal
few curry leaves
1 tbsp oil
salt to taste


In a few drops of oil, fry urad daal, channa daal, dry red chillies and green chillies. When they splutter, add the onions and coriander. Cook till the onions are translucent and coriander has withered. Add coconut in the end before removing from the flame.
Cool it and grind to chutney consistency.
Temper it with mustard seeds,curry leaves and urad daal in a tbsp of oil.
Add salt to taste to the chutney along with tempering and mix well.
Serve and Enjoy!!!

It was a yummy chutney, but on the sweeter side.
The onion makes the chutney a little sweet, so next time I make it, I am going to add more green chillies and dry red chillies.
But nonetheless, it was super delish. Would surely be yummy along with idli and dosas!
We had it with hot rice!
