Thanks goes to:
Rani aathai. She taught me this recipe. She usually does this chutney with green chillies. But I didnt have the green chillies at home so add the red chillies and that too came out too well.

You can even add a 1/2" ginger slice to the chutney while grinding instead of onion and that also gives an awesome flavour.
