This is a super easy onion chilli chutney with just two ingredients. We call it as Pacha vengaya chutney as its a no cook recipe. We use raw onions and green chilli to make it. It tastes divine with idli & dosa. We do this chutney at least twice in a week & this is my most favourite side dishWinking smile. In our family, we call it as “ Vengaya Molaapdi”. I learnt this from my MIL.The key for this recipe is you 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. U will love its simplicity and ofcourse its taste. This chutney tastes the best with sour dosa (pulicha maavu dosa) and hot idli Winking smile.  Lets see how to make this easy,peasy South Indian/ Tamil nadu style onion chutney for idli dosa with a video !
