This is a super easy onion chutney with just two ingredients.It tastes divine with idli & dosa.We do this at least twice in a week & this is my most favourite  chutneyWinking smile. We call this as “ Vengaya Molaapdi”.I learnt this from my MIL.The key is u should keep the onions, chilli & salt in correct ratio otherwise it would taste very spicy or bitter :) If you are looking for super hot and spicy onion chutney, you must try this especially bachelors.
