spicy onion garlic chutney recipe


I love to try different chutney recipes for idly or dosa. This spicy onion garlic chutney recipe is very simple to make and it tastes yum. Nothing can beat spicy chutney with hot idly and dosa. I already posted garlic chutney, small onion chutney. I got this onion garlic recipe from my friend and tried it yesterday,  it was so good with samai idly. I really like onion and garlic combo. You can try this chutney without coconut too. If you are onion lover, then you will like this chutney.
