INGREDIENTS

    2 medium onion
    1 tsp oil
    1 tbsp urad dal
    2 dried red chillies
    5-6 curry leaves
    1 small piece tamarind
    ½ tsp salt

DIRECTIONS

Bored of having sambar with your dosa or idli everyday? This tasty tamarind chutney is great to replace your boring sambar.

Method:

1. Start by roasting your onions until completely charred from the outside. Remove into a bowl and peel the outer layer once cool enough to handle. Chop roughly and keep aside.
2. In a pan, heat oil. Add urad dal, red chillies and curry leaves and fry until dal turns golden brown. Switch off flame. Add tamarind and mix well.
3. In a blender, add the chopped onion, fried ingredients, salt and process until you get a coarse chutney. Serve with idlis and dosas.
Optional: You can add ½ cup grated fresh coconut while grinding chutney. In that case, increase red chillies by 1.
