Neerulli (Onion) Thambuli (Udupi Recipe)

Neerulli (ನೀರುಳ್ಳಿ - in Kannada, வெங்காயம் in Tamil) thambuli is very tasty and can be had with plain rice or fried rice also and with chapaathis! Now, the recipe:


  • 2 Medium sized onions chopped,
  • 2-3 Green chilli
  • 1/2 cup Grated Coconut
  • 1/2 cup Curd
  • 1/2 tsp. refined oil or ghee
  • Salt, as per taste


  • 1/2 tsp. Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. Coconut oil
  • Curry leaves


Fry the onion and green chilli in ghee or oil for a few minutes or till the onion is transparent. Grind with coconut and a little water, in a mixer till it is soft and add the curd and grind for a second. Pour in a vessel and add enough water to bring it to the dosa batter consistency. Or a bit more watery, if you feel so. Garnish and your onion thambuli is ready to serve.

Your comments are welcome!
