Onion Bhuthi is a traditional Konkani preparation which goes well with both Rice and Roti. Our forefathers made this Onion Bhuthi during the monsoon season, as vegetables were scarce then, because of the incessant rains. Onions could be bought during summer and stored in bulk. Onion Ambat, Onion Gozzu, Onion Tamballi and Onion Upkari were the other dishes prepared. Each has its own unique taste. You can find the recipes to all in this website.
- 4 large onions
- 1/2 of a large coconut
- 12 roasted Byadgi Chillies
- 1 tbsp tamarind paste
- 3 tbsps Coconut oil
- 1 tsp mustard
Peel the onions, wash thoroughly and chop them fine. Heat oil in a pan. Drop in the mustard. After it crackles add the chopped onions and salt. Keep roasting on a gentle flame till translucent. Grind the coconut, roasted red chillies and tamarind to a smooth paste. Tip it into the roasted onions. Allow to boil and keep roasting till it turns semi solid. Keep aside for about fifteen minutes for the flavours to infuse before serving.
