Hot Onion Garlic Chutney recipe

Hot Onion-Garlic Chutney

Hey guys,

Hot Onion Garlic chutney is the simplest chutney that you can ever prepare. There is no need for really “cooking” anything for this chutney (That simple, huh??!!??). All it needs is just grinding 🙂 People who are fond of onion and garlic and those who enjoy “hot” food should definitely go for this one.

It has been a while since I have posted a quick recipe. I was all stuck with all year-end appraisal stuffs (This is when your manager suddenly gets reminded of all the things that you HAVE NOT DONE YET, you know 😀 Where is your certification? What are your learning and stuffs?? Oh, God !!! ). Finally I am done with all those things and I had managed to take a few clicks of all my quick recipes in the past couple of weeks ( Seriously, past two weeks had seen me cooking hell lotta all new really-quick stuffs). Hmmm, Over to Onion-Garlic Chutney now.

Hot Onion Garlic Chutney (also called vengaya milagai podi) is very easy to prepare and it would go well with Idly and Dosa, People who plan to travel for a day can take this with Idly/Dosa and this would taste better when it is well-coated over Idly/Dosa and consumed after a couple of hours 🙂

Hot Onion-Garlic Chutney Recipe


To Grind:

Onions – 3 medium sized/2 Big ones

Garlic – 10-12 pods

Salt –  As needed

Red Chilly – 3

To Temper:

Gingelly Oil – 4 tsps

Mustard seeds – 1 tsps

Curry leaves – a few ( as per your taste)


Preparation Method:

1) Chop onions roughly ( As we are going to grind, there is no need to chop into fine pieces).

2) Peel the skin off Garlic pods.

3) Put the chopped onions, garlic and red chilly along with salt in the Mixer Grinder ( Mixie).

4) Grind them all well WITHOUT adding water.


5) Temper the items given under “To temper” using gingelly oil and add to chutney.

Tit Bits:

1) This would really be very hot, so add generous amount of gingelly oil while consuming.

2) People who are not big fans of onion/garlic may not like this one. But, even they would like this, when this chutney is coated over idly/oil and consumed after an hour 🙂

3) Adding ghee/Gingelly oil would suppress the hotness of the chutney. You can adjust the amount of red chillies according to your taste.

4) Do not add water while grinding as onion itself would leave water.

5) Grind well until you get the color as shown in the picture.
