How To Make Spiced Onion Salad with Dips & Chutneys Poppadoms Dips

spiced onions / Indian onion salad

3 Easy Indian Dips including Indian onion salad

Here are my recipes for 3 quick and easy Indian Dips, a must for any Indian themed dinner party or just as a snack with Naan Bread or Popadoms.  Spiced onions are my absolute favorite, and ever since moving away from Scotland, I have never been able to find them in this style.  So… I had to just find the way to make them myself.

If you are not a fan of strong onion flavour, you can chop the onions and soak in a large bowl of cold water for an hour or so before making the recipe, this will take away some of the strength of the onions and make them a little bit more palatable, and you will suffer less breath stink too! 🙂

Check out my Naan Bread Recipe for the perfect pairing.

    Made all three and they were delicious. The addition of mayonnaise to the mint yogurt added a little creaminess. I added more mint sauce and chutney to taste. Everyone loved them
