Indian raw onion chutney

Serves 4 5 min
This fast chutney should be somewhere between fairly and eye-wateringly spicy, depending on your taste. If raw red onion has too harsh a flavour for you, try using a few shallots or a sweeter white onion instead. This is good for a curry dinner – either added as a condiment or used as a dip. It pairs well with cooling raita.


  • 1 large red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 heaped tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


Prep time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Mix all the ingredients. Taste and add a little more cumin or chilli if it needs it.
