** Instead of red chilli paste you can add red chilli powder in water and add to fried onion and remaining steps are same.

** I used 3 red chillies which are very spicy, adjust chillies according to your.

** If you are not able to grind red chilli paste smoothly then add few tomatoes pieces while grinding you will get smooth paste. You can also add coarsely grinded red chilli paste but adding smooth paste will gives you good texture , color and taste to chutney.
