Heat 1 Tsp of Oil in a pan.
To this add 1/4 tsp of Mustard Seeds (Rye) 1/4 Tsp Cumin Seeds( Jeera).
Wait for them to pop before you add, 7-8 Curry leaves (Kadipatta) 3-4 Dry Red Chillies and about 4-5 medium sized pods of Garlic (peeled)
Saute for 2-3 mins.
When done, keep aside to cool.
In the same pan, heat 1/2 Tsp of Oil.
To this add 1 small Onion, chopped fine.
Saute till transparent.
Now add 1/2 tsp of Red Chilli Powder (medium spicy)
Saute for 1-2 minutes more.
Take off the flame.
Add all the ingredients above, in a blender.
add salt to taste, and about 1/2 a Tsp of water (or as required)
Blend to a coarse paste.
Garnish with coriander.
If the chutney becomes too spicy, add a dash of lemon juice.
The taste of the Chutney changes, depending on the Onions you use, so have fun experimenting.
You could use the Onions raw as well. That gives a completely different taste too.
