This was just so quick to make. I chopped my onions and made it exactly as is. When I tasted it..WOW, I got the taste of lemon and heat. So I too added some brown sugar just to take away some of the lemon flavor. And I love spicy but I wanted to enjoy the taste. I would cut back on the lemon the next time. And there will be a next time.
How does a recipe which contains onions and cayenne manage not to offend my wimpy heat-phobic taste buds? I don't know, but it worked! This comes as a condiment with the thali I get at a local Indian kitchen and I fell in love with it even though I usually need to put the fire out with a mouthful of yogurt. And now I can make it at home, quite quickly, and without as much of a bite! Instead of mincing, I sliced the onion, but followed the rest of the recipe precisely. This is fantastic, Sue, thank you so much!
This is quick and delicious. After I made it exactly as the recipe said, I added 1/4 tsp of brown sugar to take the edge off the lemon. We added it to black beans and rice and it really kicked it up!
I can't believe I ate half of this in one sitting! The onion's flavor really mellows and is so easy to eat. I made this exactly as stated and it was just the right amount of heat for me. Easy to put together if you use a food processor to mince the onion. I had this with baked tortilla strips, as a dip. What little was left over went into some soup to kick it up a bit. Very versatile and delicious. Thanks for sharing this one, Sue!
