Onion has a unique aroma and tastes different when consumed raw and when added to the masala where it is typically fried in oil, it tastes heavenly. Other than their typical use in dishes, they are even consumed as the sole side-dish/combination with Jwari Roti and regular Roti. But this recipe is about onions in side-dish in the form of Wet chutney. In fact this post will be yet another in my series of posts on Wet Chutney. Onion chutney tastes so yummy that we keep licking our fingers even after we empty the plate. The procedure is simple and is worth a shot.
