Onion Chutney


"Weekend Herb Blogging" was started by Kalyn and after 3 years Haalo took over to continue this. This series is on and continuing since 7 long years and it has reached #318 series this week. This week series is hosted by Cindystar here.

Onions are often chopped and used an ingredient in various hearty warm dishes, but are often used as a main ingredient in their own right, for example in French onion soup or onion chutney. They are also used raw in cold salads. Onions pickled in vinegar are eaten as a snack. These are often served as a side serving in fish and chip shops throughout the United Kingdom and Australia, often served with cheese in the United Kingdom, and as "pickled onions" in Eastern Europe.

Tomato Rice (direct)

Tomato Rice (direct):

Searching/Juggling for a breakfast every day morning is really difficult. I feel so bad because if I do new things my family members will try it out and pass a comment, "its good".

But, if I try traditional ones, I will get a comment from my hubby "did you eat? is it good? nobody in the house had it except you". In office, if I share the same they will pass a comment saying, "Its good". Seriously I am tired and don't know how to understand taste of my own family. Speaking truth is bitter sometimes, but I don't have a go except for sharing with you all.

I tried out tomato rice today, in the way my mom-in-law used to cook.

  • Ripped Tomatoes - 6
  • Salt to taste
  • Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
  • Curry leaves - few
  • Cilantro - few (chopped)
  • Turmeric Power - 1 tsp
  • Dhaniya/Coriander Seeds Powder - 1 tbsp
  • Red Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
  • Green Chillies - 3 to 4
  • Fenugreek seeds+Mustard seeds - grinded powder - 1 tsp
  • Jaggery - small one (just for taste)
  • Oil - for tadka
  • Urad dal - 1 tbsp
  • Channa dal - 1 tbsp

  1. Heat oil in a kadai and add mustard seeds to it, once it splutters, add curry leaves to it.
  2. Add urad dal, channa dal, salt to the oil and leave till it turns reddish brown
  3. Add chopped ripped tomatoes to the above mixture and mix them well

My working day starts with writing a post. I am getting addicted to my blog. Thanks for all those whom I follow through their blogs. Added advantage is event in their blog.

Yesterday, I had just posted my tomato gojju recipe which I prepared on last friday. As it was over I just did tomato gojju and mixed it with my bread. Had tomato bread and coffee for my breakfast, an yummy and healthy breakfast.

  • Tomato Gojju - 1 tbsp
  • Bread - 2
  • Butter - 1 tsp

  1. Put the butter on the bread on both the sides and toast them
  2. Separate the bread crumbs from the bread and keep it aside
  3. Take a bowl and mix bread pieces and tomato gojju.
  4. Garnish the mixture with bread crumbs as the bread pieces would have become soft.
