Onion Kara Chutney Recipe

Onion Kara Chutney is an easy chutney that can be prepared in 10 minutes. No fancy ingredients just regular red onion is fine and is perfect accompaniment for Idli / Dosa / Adai / Paniyarams. I prepared this chutney to go with Wheat Adai Dosai/Dalia Adai Dosai. I used Guntur Chillies so the chutney got nice color and it was spicy too. Make this chutney little spicy to balance the sweetness from onions. Tastes best with hot hot idlis. Give it a try and let me know how it turned out to you.
