Vengaya Chutney/Onion Chutney Recipe

This onion chutney is my moms recipe after many requests for this recipe on my facebook and youtube I'm posting this blog. Since my parents are diabetic and they cannot consume coconut on a regular basis we prepare onion chutney for breakfast. We can serve this chutney for Idly, Dosa, Chapati and few snacks like samosas or cutlets. 

We can top the chutney with sesame oil or sun flower oil before serving, I've seen few of my relatives serving this chutney with a dollop of butter on top, Healthy option I would suggest using sesame oil.
