Sambar Onion Palya

25 - 30 medium/small sized Sambar Onion / Sanna Eerulli
10 - 12 Green Chillies
Salt to taste
1/4 cup grated Coconut
1 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Black Gram seeds
2 - 3 strands of Curry leaves
3 - 4 tsp Oil

Remove the outer cover of each onion, wash them and keep them aside. Cut the green chillies into two halves.

Put mustard seeds, black gram seeds and oil in a thick bottomed vessel/pan. Once it starts spluttering, add curry leaves and slit green chillies. Fry this for few seconds and then add the onions, salt and fry them for about 10-15 minutes in low flame until they are cooked.(Sprinkle little amount of water in-between if required.)

Add grated coconut and mix them well. Keep the Palya in low flame for about 2-3 mins. Serve hot. It goes well with Chapathis/Rottis.
