Spring onion Chutney - Spring onion Dip - Simple side dish for idli, dosa or paratha

As you can see in my blog I love to try different dips especially with vegetable. My 1st son who is not a big fan of Onion loves the spring onion flavour. So I wanted to try this chutney for a while. But ended up making something else with Spring onion. This time I purposely got more spring onion and first thing I did was to do this chutney. The flavour is really amazing. You will love this nice twist for sure
