Ulli chamandhi | Chutney with onions

We are in the final week of this Mega blogging marathon. I am really happy since I was able to complete all the recipes in time. No hassles this time :-). And there is one more good news to share. My blog's pageviews crossed one lakh :-)

This week's English alphabets are bit tricky ones. For many I had to depend on English words to fulfill the JTTC condition. Atleast, I didn't think a lot for recipes starting from U. Ulli in malayalam means onions. Ulli chamandhi is a very spicy and tangy chutney which would be a good accompaniment for idli, dosas, appams etc..

As it has no coconut, it is diabetic friendly and doesn’t spoil quickly as well unlike the other chutney varieties. So this is an ideal chutney for travels. This is very simple, easy to make chutney and I would say everyone should try this.


Shallots - 2 cups (peeled)
Red chillies - 8 (long ones)
Tamarind - gooseberry sized ball
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Curry leaves / Coriander leaves - to garnish


  • Heat the Oil, add Sliced Onion and fry until they turn brown.
  • Then add Red Chillies, Tamarind piece. Fry for about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and keep aside until the ingredients cool down.
  • Then Grind all the ingredients along with salt. No need to add water.
  • Garnish with curry leaves or coriander leaves.

Hot and spicy chutney is ready!!!


  • This is a very hot chutney. Add or reduce red chillies according to your taste.
