Pacha vengaya chutney in just 5 mins, 3 ingredients, for a quick fix to your weekend breakfast side dish for dosa or idli.
Always look forward for quick and easy chutneys to make in the morning hurry burry or even for a quick dinner fix when you have idli dosa batter. I make this one often when my in-laws visit me as my FIL is a big fan of this one. Found Vj too loves this chutney. I make the same thing with green chilli too, which I have posted earlier. Just 3 ingredients, both chutney have two different flavours.
It is best when it is made by the method of crushing like they used to do in ammikal. But we have no other options than using a blender.
Key points before making the chutney are, first to salt the chutney correctly. Second, do not blend smooth. It has to be coarse, if you grind smooth, then it will taste bitter and different.
Step by step pictures:
- Peel onions, chop them very roughly.
- Blend red chilli and salt to a powder first, then add very little water to make it a paste.
- Add onion and just give it a pulse (few seconds), do not grind for long time, it has to be coarse.
My FIL and Vj takes extra dosa if it is this chutney, happy me 💗.
