Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, stir onion and ketchup until onion is thinly and evenly coated. Mix in the lemon juice. Season with sugar, cilantro, fenugreek and chili powder, and mix thoroughly. Cover, and chill for 24 hours. This allows the lemon juice to neutralize the onion flavor slightly.

I was very disappointed in this. I followed the recipe except only had fenugreek seeds so ground 1 tsp. The onion flavor the next day was overpowering, and it was too sweet. Definitely not just like what is served at my favorite Indian restaurant; not even close.

I modified this recipe slightly to get fairly favourable results. Firstly I used the juice of a whole lemon, mixed with the onion and left to stand for about 8 hours at room temperature. I then washed the lemon juice off and prepared as directed with the exception of the use of sugar and fenugreek. I might consider using paprika rather than chilli powder next time for a less aggressive heat.

As written, this didn't work. Cut back on the sugar and chilli, and it's pretty good. I liked the contrast of the ketchup and the lemon juice. This was ok for a change but I won't be making it again. Thanks anyway.
