CHINNAVENGAYAM CHUTNEY I SHALLOTS DIP (SAMBHAR VENGAYAM)

Hi friends, in my childhood I never tasted or even tried to taste the shallots/onions, garlic and all…I hate the shallots, onion and garlic smells, I hesitate to touch the shallots...  But now, I love both yes, I include these things in my diet a lot.


Generally shallots (Small Onion/Sambhar Onion) are healthier than big onion. So most probably we used shallots include in our diet…This is go well with idli, dosa, chapathi, paniyaram, rava roast etc… 3 main ingredients enough to make the yummy chutney. In our home its our favourite, and I made the chutney first time by me…
