Mint Onion Chutney | Side Dish for Idli Dosa

Need a simple and flavorful side dish for idli/dosa or looking for a simple and savory spread for your bread? Here you go, for a quick and tasty side dish.
Ingredients:
Pearl Onions - 15 (~2 cups)
Mint leaves - a handful
Tomato - 1/2
Green chilli - 3
Grated Coconut - 2 tbsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Tempering:
Oil - 1 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - a few
Method:
Heat oil in a skillet and add the slit green chillies and onions. Fry the onions until soft and translucent and then pop in the tomatoes. When the tomatoes are soft add the mint leaves and saute in low heat till it wilts. Turn the heat off and add the grated coconut and mix. When cool blend with water and salt. Heat the oil for tempering and splutter the mustard seeds and curry leaves. Mix with the chutney. Serve with hot idli/dosa. Makes a great spread for bread and dip for chips.
