Garam Piyaz ki Chutney...Hot Onion Chutney

Asalam Alaikum,

Piyaz chutney is a simple dish that we use as a condiment or a side dish to simple meals. It is very simple to make and does not take very much time.

6-8 medium piyaz(onion)
10-12 hari mirch(green chilies)
namak(salt)-to taste
1 tbsp lal mirch(red chili powder)
1/4 cup tel(oil)

Step 1-Remove the skins from your piyaz

Step 2-Cut each piyaz in half and then slice thinly.

Step 3-Wash hari mirch and slice into rounds, slightly less than 1/4 inch.

Step 4-Add tel to the frying pan.
Step 5-Add piyaz to the tel, and Fry until golden.
Step 6Add hari mirch mix well.
Step 7-Add lal mirch powder, mix well.
Step 8-Add namak, mix well. Fry the chutney for another couple minutes, until the mirch just start to soften, and lose their raw look.

Piyaz chutney is ready. It works well as a side to a plain dal, or kitchery to spice it up a bit


  1. wowow this is something very awesome and spicy! i love it! my mum makes it with daals often and we just love eatig daal with it!

    Aishah i wonder dun you feel it alot spicy?As you have been brought up in America and they are habitual of light less spices:)?

  2. When I first married Tariq I learned a little Pakistani cooking from him, and we always used less spices that a recipe normally used because it was too hot for me. When we came here it took some time to become used to the spices, but now I eat everything that the family does with no problem. It just takes getting used to. The only thing I don't do is eat raw hari mirch :-), but Tariq loves to eat them with his food.

  3. Aww :D eating raw hari mirch needs lots of potential :D i cant eat it too.But my dear dad loves eating it :D i just get amazed when i see him eating a full raw green chilli with every morsel :D
