A chutney from the memories of my childhood; a rustic onion chutney to serve with a multiple of dishes such as idli, dosai, poori, rotis, upma, etc. Heat of the chilies, balanced with the sweetness of the onion, and the sourness of the tamarind makes a wonderful accompaniment to mild and bland dishes.
This is a versatile spice powder made with coriander seeds, red chilies, sesame seeds, cumin and can be used as a finishing touch for tamarind rice. This powder has a shelf life of at least 2 weeks, and more if refrigerated. Use it as a final garnish on any dry curries that need a little spice and flavor.
