Red Onion Chutney

You the red onion chutney you get at Indian restaurants to eat with papad? Well this is that restaurant style chutney. It’s actually my husband’s recipe… I can’t believe I’m writing that LOL.

A little background, my husband doesn’t cook… AT ALL. He maybe makes Maggi or Ramen once in a blue moon. He wanted to try this chutney and tried a few different ways and boom he NAILED it. It’s such a good condiment to have in your fridge, below I’m sharing a few different ways to eat this. There are endless possibilities, but just listing some. My personal favorite ways to eat are with papad and topping for tacos.

Stay happy, stay hungry!
