Onion-Yogurt Dip, Whenever I make this, I feel & see, how the pride (in making us cry while chopping) of  watery & crunchy onion has been put down, by frying it up and putting into a pool of yogurt/curd. 🙂 

This chutney/dip can be served with any rice,chips, roti,naan bread too.

Before starting to cook this recipe , see the Tips mentioned at the end.
