Onion - Tomato Chutney
The figure shows Adai served with onion-tomato chutney.
Red / yellow onion - 1 medium size
Roma tomato -2
urid dhal (black gram) - 1 tbsp
Dried Red chilli - 4
tamarind - 2 inch
mustard seeds - 1 tsp
curry leaves - 1 brig
oil - 2 tsp
Salt - tsp
Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan.
Fry the urid dhal to red color.Keep aside.
In the same oil fry the red chillies and keep aside.
Add 1 tsp oil , fry the chopped onion to golden brown , keep aside.
In the remaining oil, crackle the mustard seeds and fry the curry leaves with chopped tomatoes.
cook the tomato with very little water. Switch of flame. Add the tamarind and mix everything. Let them cool.
Grind them in an Indian mixer or blender with 1 tsp vinegar (optional) and 1 tsp salt. Vinegar gives a strong spicy taste. So if you cannot take more heat, omit vinegar and reduce the number of red chillies.
Spicy , red oinion-Tomato chutney is ready.
Serve as side dish with Idly , dosa or Adai.
I love it with Adai.
