How To Make Maharashtrian Mirchi Thecha Or Green Chilli- Garlic Chutney

Green chilli chutney recipe: Thecha is usually paired with bhakri

Highlights
  • Maharashtrian cuisine is known for its spicy delights
  • Thecha is a chilly accompaniment
  • Thecha can be paired with any kind of bhakri or flatbread

How we love a spicy, fiery spin to our spread every once in a while! Indian food is known for the wide gamut of spices used in preparing them, but that does not mean all of our dishes are 'burn-the-food-pipe' level of hot. In fact, 'balance' is key component in cuisines across India. This is why if you have a mellow dal and chawal, the idea of including a slightly quirky chutney into the mix is always an enticing one. And while you may have had many kinds of chutneys in your life, if you hadn't had thecha, you are probably missing out on a lot.

The famous Maharashtrian accompaniment is ideally made with a combination of green chillies, garlic, peanuts and coriander. The grainy, super thick and delicious thecha is usually paired with bhakri, a kind of Maharashtrian flat-bread and can be stored for upto two-three days depending on the ingredients you use and the amount you have prepared. It is traditionally made using a mortar or pestle, but nowadays many people prepare it using a mixer-grinder too.
