Onion & Coriander Chutney - Vengayam Kothamalli chutney

Serves 3
This one's from my mom's kitchen.It's a regular at home,we have it at least twice or thrice in a week with dosas and idlis. This is one of those humble & simple dishes that we take for granted,but we can't do without .My mom makes it very spicy and when paired with Ghee dosa it tastes just awesome !

You'll Need:
Onion - 1 big (chopped)
Tomato - 1/2 a big one
oil - 2-3 tsp
Garlic - 2 -3 cloves (chopped)
Whole Red Chilli - 2
Coriander leaves - 1/2 a big bunch(around 20 dense sprigs)(chopped)
Mint leaves - leaves from 10 -12 sprigs
Tamarind - a small piece
Grated coconut -  3 - 4 heaped tsp
salt as needed

-To a pan add the oil,when it heats up splutter the whole red chilli and the garlic and saute for a minute or two until they are browned.
-Add the onion & a little salt and saute until it turns translucent.Next add the tomatoes and saute for 3 - 4 minutes or until they turn slightly soft.
-Add the chopped coriander and mint leaves and saute until they cook a bit,around 3 -4 minutes.
-Add the tamarind and coconut and saute for another 2 -3 minutes.
-Take it off the stove and let it cool.Blend to a fine paste adding salt and water as needed. Done !

Thanks for stopping by ! Have a great day and Happy  Cooking !
