Onion Chutney – A Quick Make!

Onion Chutney Recipe: I simply love making chutneys. They are easy to make and save lot of my time especially in the hectic morning schedule. I keep experimenting with the ingredients and there are times when certain combinations have made me go mad. I liked the taste of onion chutney that I made this week as a side for idlies and thought its a must share for viewers.
