Raw Onion Chutney


  1. 1/2 cup roasted peanuts ground coarsely;
  2. 1 large onion chopped very fine;
  3. 1 tbsp. tamarind juice;
  4. 1 tsp. red chilli powder (paprika);
  5. 1/4 tsp. cumin seeds (jeera);
  6. 3 sprigs of cilantro (coriander leaves), washed and chopped;
  7. 1 tsp. oil;
  8. 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds; and
  9. 1 whole dried red chilli.


  1. Blend ingredients 1 to 5 in a blender, watching not to grind too finely, just until they are all mixed together;
  2. Transfer the mixture (chutney) to a serving dish;
  3. Heat oil in a small cast iron or steel saucepan;
  4. Add the mustard seeds and the whole dried red chilli;
  5. Turn off the flame just as the mustard seeds begin to crackle;
  6. Pour the oil with the mustard seeds and the red chilli over the chutney; and
  7. Garnish with chopped cilantro.

I would heartily recommend popping a couple of mints after consuming this!

Raw onion chutney goes very well with Ragi Dosas or Rava Dosas. I'll put up recipes for Ragi Dosa, Rava Dosa and my favorites, Moong Dal and Channa Dal Dosas.
