Pyaaz ki -- or onion -- chutney is a delicious condiment that you can use as a dip or spread and tastes great with just about anything. Use it to give a nice tang to your curries, perk up various cheeses or add some spicy zing to roasted vegetables. With just three large onions -- and a few other simple ingredients -- and about 15 minutes of your time, you can whip up one of the most versatile chutneys to flavor your dishes.
- 3 large onions (chopped or sliced)
- 1-inch piece of ginger
- Optional: 2 to 3 green chilies
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (or canola or sunflower cooking oil)
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 3 red chilies (dry, broken into 1-inch bits)
- 1 pinch salt (to taste)
Grind the onions, ginger and green chilies (if you are using them) into a smooth paste in a food processor. Remove the mix into a serving bowl.
In a small pan, heat the oil over a medium flame until it is very hot. Add the cumin seeds and fry them until they stop sputtering.
Add the dry red chilies and fry them until they turn darker.
Add this tempering mixture of oil, cumin and red chilies to the onion-ginger-green chili paste.
Add salt to taste.
Stir to mix well.
Serve the condiment as a chutney, dip or use it as a sandwich spread.
