You will experience the pure, intense flavour of onions in this Spicy Onion Chutney. The flavour of onions is not masked by any spices in this delicious and easy chutney, which is made with just onions and red chillies sautéed in coconut oil.

Make sure you keep a constant eye on the onions when you sauté them, because they should not turn brown. They should just be translucent or light pink even after adding the chillies.

To get the ideal pinkish colour, use only normal dry red chillies and not the deep-red Kashmiri ones. Serve this chutney with idlis and dosas for a vibrant, flavour-packed breakfast.
