Onion chutney

Onion chutney is a great accompaniment for the Ujjrotti. My mom makes this recipe in a unique way, using fried onions. After grinding the chutney, it is heated again with seasoning. The chutney loaded with onion tastes delicious. Whenever my mom makes this, chutney gets over faster than rotti :).. Note: I have used pomegranate seeds powder instead of tamarind, due to my diet restriction..
