Mangalore onion chutney. An onion chutney made in Mangalore style and served with dosa, idli or snacks like bonda and bajji.
I learned this mangalore onion chutney from renowned chef named Venkatesh Bhatt on a television show. I have adapted the quantity of the ingredients as per my choice.
Onion chutney has so many variations. Each and every variation tastes great. If I make idli or dosa, my family insists on having onion chutney.
I would use white or red onions to make the chutney or sometimes, I would use both. White onions give a pale white color whereas red onions give a reddish color to the chutney. Few of my friends would use both white and red onions. The flavors of these onions also vary. However, making onion chutney at home is worth the effort.
Mangalore onion chutney goes well with snacks like bondas, dosa and idli. It tastes delicious and completely addicting. Enjoy mangalore onion chutney with bondas and have a perfect and satisfying snack.
