Chinna vengaya chutney, prepared with with small onions (shallots) and curry leaves, without tomato and coconut. A delicious south Indian chutney side dish for idli, dosa.
Do not add more tamarind, it will turn too tangy for idli / dosa.
If you want you can add a tomato in this recipe.
Anything like urad dal, chana dal or coconut can be added in this recipe, but the idea is to keep it simple and different from my regular chutneys.
First thing you can temper, transfer to a bowl and then fry the other things too.
