Grilled onions become a savory chutney after a quick simmer with fresh tomato, a touch of sugar, vinegar, and spices. Serve with grilled or roasted potatoes.
Heat 1 Tbs. of the oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the cumin and pepper flakes and cook, stirring constantly, until toasted and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chopped onions, tomato, vinegar, sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, and 1/3 cup water. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium, and boil until the onions are soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Uncover the pot and continue to boil, stirring often, until thickened, about 5 minutes more. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, rub the lamb all over with the remaining 1 Tbs. oil and season with 2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Grill, flipping once, until deep golden-brown outside and medium rare inside, about 8 minutes total. Serve topped with the chutney.

The charred onion chutney was delicious and easy to make, a waste on such a poor cut of meat. Next time I'll use real lamb chops (not shoulder) or substitute pork tenderloin/chops.
The chutney is good; I just don't think it should be paired with lamb. Read my full review at: http://themomchef.blogspot.com/2010/06/grilled-lamb-chops-with-charred-red.html
