Mint Onion Chutney

Normally Mint Chutney is prepared without onions. Adding a few onions changes the taste of the chutney quiet dramatically. Another good thing about adding onions is that you can get much more quantity of chutney than without adding the onions.

Recipe Cuisine : South Indian | Recipe Category: Chutney
Preparation Time: 5 mins  | Cooking Time: 10 mins | Yields: 1 cup

Mint Leaves
1 cup (tightly measured)
Chopped Onion
½ cup
Red Chilli
1 or 2
Turkey Berry (sundaikkai) size
Urad Dal (white or black)
1 tbsp
As required
2 tsp

1. Clean, wash and drain the water from the mint leaves.
2. Remove the skin of the onions and cut them into small pieces.
3. Heat the oil in a pan, add urad dal and sauté till nice aroma comes out.
4. Then add the red chilli and fry for few seconds.
5. Now add the onion and sauté till the onion becomes translucent.
6. Add mint leaves and fry till the raw smell goes off. Switch off the flame and add tamarind and salt. Allow it to cool down completely.
7. Grind this mixture using the mixie with little water into a smooth paste. Transfer the chutney into serving bowl. Use little water to wash the mixie and mix this water with chutney.
       Aromatic and healthy green chutney is ready to serve.

1. Adjust the red chilli level according to your taste.
2. You can use split gram (kadalai paruppu) instead of urad dal.
3. I have used small onion, but you can use big onion also. But small onion gives very nice taste than big one.
