Grilled Onion and Carrot Chutney

I am a big Chutney / Thogaiyal (as we say in tamil) fan. Reading all the food blogs in the blogsphere has given me confidence that I can “chutneyfy” almost any vegetable. One such attempt is this onion and carrot chutney. This has a distinct sweetness and colour from the carrot and the tang from the onion. It pairs well with just about any entree you choose. I hope its not too late to send it to Sizzling Summer Contest. Enjoy!


  • Onion – 1 big
  • Carrots – 7 baby carrots
  • Whole Dried Chillies  – 3
  • Urad Dhaall – 2 tbsp
  • Tamarind paste – 1 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Mustard for seasoning

Putting it together

  • Coat the onions and carrot with some oil and grill them until nice and smoky. Alternately, if you do not own a grill, you can pan fry them.
  • Roast the Urad dhaal and Dried chillies separately in a pan
  • Grind all of them together in a food processor along with tamarind paste and salt
  • In a pan, add some oil and mustard seeds. Once they sputter add them to the chutney
  • You can use this as pesto, or a spread, or dip or even serve with rice.
