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.
