We had this at a local Indian restaurant and tried to replicate it. We all love this version to dip our naan and samosas and rarely is there any sauce left.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't have a food processor, you can mince the onion and stir all the ingredients together.

It will last a week in fridge or you can freeze and defrost to room temperature before serving.

I wanted something just a little different and this was it! I did add extra heat to it and it was just the right touch. Amazing with chicken wings!! Poured over rice and with spring rolls. Will definitely make this again. Read More

I made this and added greek yogurt to it to thicken it up. I would like to make it again but cook the onions a bit to tame the sharp flavour. Oh and adding a bit of dill to the top was a great added flavour. Read More

I made this per recipe and it was not good. It tastes like spicy onion. It also lacks any classic Indian flavor. I thought I could improve it somehow but the onion base is just overpowering and cannot be improved. I do not recommend this. Read More

I made this an another very similar recipe on the same night. I preferred this one better but I did like the flavor the chili powder added to the other recipe so I added some here too. I'm not sure what this is supposed to taste like traditionally but I'll say that it sure was good. Read More
