    • You can grind bit coarse too.
    • If you want you can add 2 tblsp of coconut along with this.
    • If you want, you can just fry the onion and add red chilli powder instead using the whole ones. This will give a bright red chutney.
               Serve with idli or best with godhuma dosai or else like me Nei podi dosai. Tastes heaven!
