Raw Onion Garlic Chutney / Poondu Vengaya chutney

This spicy chutney is easy to make and best for Idli, Dosa and Kuzhipniyaram. We can store this chutney upto 1 or 2 days in the refrigerator.


Small onions/ Shallots - 15 no.
Garlic - 10 cloves
Redchillies - 5 to 6 
Tamarind - a small piece
Salt - to taste
Gingelly oil - 1 to 2 tbsp
Water - as required


Add all the ingredients except gingelly oil in the blender / mixer with little water and grind it into a smooth paste.

Adjust consistency as required by adding water. Transfer to a suitable container.

Drizzle with gingelly oil and serve.


Adding gingelly oil will enhances the taste and helps to reduce the spice level of the chutney.

Adjust the amount of chillies according to your taste.
