Onion Sweet, Hot and Sour Chutney

What is a complex taste – you have many dimensions to it. This chutney is all about about multi dimensional taste. It is sweet, sour and hot. It goes very well with chapathi. curd rice, idli or dosa. I got this recipe from here.

Soak tamarind in 1 cup of warm water for 15 minutes and extract thick pulp and set aside
Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. Once the mustard seeds crackle, add the onions, ginger, garlic, curry leaves and salt. Cook until the onions turn golden
Add the tamarind juice, red chili powder, turmeric, asafetida and allow it to cook for around 10 minutes until the raw smell of tamarind goes away and oil floats on top. Add jaggery and cook until the jaggery melts. Garnish with coriander leaves.
