Chinna vengaya thogaiyal /Small onion chutney


Small onions - 10-12

Urad dal - 3 tsps

Dry red chillies - 8

Coriander leaves

Salt as required

Tamarind - a small gooseberry size

Hing - a pinch


Take a kadai put little oil and roast the small onions nicely and keep aside.

Put the urad dal and dry red chillies and roast nicely in the remaining oil.

Take the mixie grinder and put all the roasted items along with tamarind salt hing and coriander leaves and add little water and grind coarsely.

Transfer the thogaiyal to a bowl.

The chinna vengaya (small onion thogaiyal) is ready to be had with plain rice and a little sesame oil added for mixing.

I added a little coriander leaves while grinding to give the thogaiyal a nice flavour.


  1. Yum....looks delicious n nice receipe

  2. The chutney is very tempting! I could lick it up in a few minutes...

  3. wow, that chutney looks super delicious.

  4. Looking at the colour, I wondered why it was green instead of the usual brown pink. Then as i read I found that out. Now it is sure a very different combination. I have never tried so far! Thank you for sharing!

  5. I would like to try this one. Looks yummy.
