About The healthy Onion chutney: Ulli pacchadi Recipe

During my childhood days, I remember my mother had prepared onion chutney to go along with dosa’s. As we were kids and being used to the routine few chutney’s, we did not like this chutney or rather we did not want to change our perception for this new chutney which had a different taste. Thus, my mother never made this chutney again for us. After marriage, like my mother, my mother in law, too dislikes dishes which have raw onion or even cooked onion. Except for onion pakoras, both them, whom I consider ‘culinary experts’ refrain from even touching the onion dishes. So I too, never tried to make onion chutney in my kitchen.
