 Chutneys are an integral part of cooking in most South Indian families. They make good accompaniments with lunch. They are also needed for breakfast  dishes as idli and dosa.  Red onion chutney is delicious and pairs up well with any kind of dosa. 

Different variety of chutney can be prepared. Mostly coconut, fresh or dried is used. Lentils, vegetable peels along with red or green chilly may be used. It tastes good with Indian flat bread as chapati or jowar roti. It is also served with steaming hot rice along with a dollop of ghee. It is a comfort food for many.

Red onion chutney is hot and spicy. Well, sometimes I do enjoy this fiery taste. Since the onions are pre-cooked, it has a good smell. This is no coconut chutney.
