Raw Onion chutney is a spicy chutney made by grinding Raw shallots, dry red chillies, garlic and fried in a tempering oil.

This is a version of onion chutney which uses shallots or pearl onions. The pearl onions have a general sweetish taste to it which adds a unique taste to this chutney.

This raw onion chutney is a 4 ingredient chutney to grind. Onions are pealed and ground along with dry red chillies, tamarind, garlic pod and then tempered.

In the olden times this is ground in stones which makes it even more flavorful, now mordern kitchens are blessed with high speed blender to get a nice chutney.

The tempering step is an important one. This is where the onion flavours is cooked off. Some recipes simply add the tempering to the chutney and serve as it is. I like to cook it off a bit so it doesn’t taste too strong.

Adding jaggery brings out the taste of the chutney. So I highly recommend.
