Curried Onion Rings w/Tamarind & Date Chutney

I am so excited to share this recipe from Spilled Milk Catering. Their curried onion rings with tamarind and date chutney is just one of the many incredible food options on their creative catering repertoire. I made these onion rings while home alone (not a good idea, since I could not stop eating them). The flavor of the curry batter was incredible and cilantro and salt combination left me…speechless.
* I used Maharajah Curry Powder from Penzey’s Spices.
