Veg Chilli Milli Recipe - Side dish for Rice, Roti, Naan

My 1st son hates onions. So every time I go out I order something with onions since I seldom do it at home. Whenever we visit Kailash Parbat we order this. My first son doesn't like this because of the onions. The rest of us love it. Sometime ago when I visited Kailash Parbat with my office colleagues we ordered this and they loved it too. It was in my to do list for quite sometime. I was planning to make 2 side dishes for roti other day so I decided to try this one (so that my 1st one can have his roti with other dish :-)). It came out pretty well.
