About The healthy Onion chutney: Ulli pacchadi

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. There is a saying in Telugu: Ulli chesina melu, Talli chheyadu (the type of goodness imparted by onions, even a mother does not do so) Last week, I remembered the onion chutney as I did not have any other vegetables in my refrigerator and kitchen, except onions. Initially, I was reluctant but then I shed my inhibitions and went ahead and made this simple chutney .
