Fiery Onion Relish

This popular condiment is often found on the tables at Indian restaurants. It is also very nice at home for adding extra kick to any meal.

  • 1 cup minced onion
  • 4 tsp. fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. sweet Hungarian paprika
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. cayenne
  • salt to taste
If you prefer less pungency from the onion, soak it in salt water to cover for about 30 minutes and then drain and rinse it.

Combine all of the ingredients and set them aside for about 30 minutes while the flavors blend.

This relish should be spicey hot, so add as much cayenne as you dare. refrigerated, this will keep for several days.
