Onion chutney / ಈರುಳ್ಳಿ ಚಟ್ನಿ

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Here is one more addition to the list of Chutneys. Normally, what we do is we will repeat only few varieties of chutney or other side dishes most of the times. Day-by-day, we ourselves will get bored with these routine things. So, I feel that it is always better to keep on adding new things to our collection.
Traditional Havyaka style of food requires lot of coconut. I will prepare some varieties of food which won't taste good if we won't add coconut. So, I will keep a stock of shredded coconut in my freezer. Last week, we bought one coconut from a store nearby. But it was spoiled and we ended up in throwing it to the dustbin. After 2-3 days, again I went for buying the coconut. I bought it from a different shop this time. For my bad luck, it was also spoiled! So, buying coconut has become a big challenge for us these days.
This chutney is from my sister's collection of recipes. Of course, lot of credit I need to give to her since so many varieties I learned from her. This goes well with dosa, idli and chapathi.


Ingredients:
1 onion
Grated coconut - 1/2 cup
Green chillies 2 - 3
Salt - according to taste  
For seasoning: oil, mustard seeds
 
Procedure:
Cut the onion lengthwise into 2 equal parts without removing its outer skin.
Take a small pan for seasoning and heat 1 spoon of oil. Add the onion pieces and whole green chillies and close the pan with a plate/lid. After 3 - 4 minutes, open the lid and turn the onion pieces into other side. 
After another 4 - 5 minutes, remove it from the flame and let it cool down for few minutes.
Once they become cool, remove the outer skin of onion pieces and cut the onion into small pieces. 
Grind the onion pieces and green chillies with grated coconut into coarse paste. 
Add salt as per taste and do the seasoning with oil and mustard seeds. 
Now, the chutney is ready to serve.
