Mirchi Cha Thecha/ गावरान मिरची चा ठेचा/ खर्डा/ Green chilly chutney/ झणझणीत मिरची चा ठेचा (महाराष्ट्रीयन)

झणझणीत हीरव्या मिरचीचा ठेचा (महाराष्ट्रीयन)

Growing up, we used to go a small village in Maharashtra called Otur in Junnar District during our summer vacations. My uncle used to rent a place there and it was a farm house. It was really fascinating to see how the ladies used to cook on Chulha (stove made with mud) and make food in iron vessels. I saw this recipe during one of those visits. So this recipe takes me back to my childhood. Though we could never eat a lot of this spicy thecha but still used to take literally half a teaspoon in the plate which used to be enough for the entire meal. Hot bhakari (one kind of Indian bread) and this thecha, yummm. Hope you like this super easy recipe. Happy Cooking Ingredients: 1. Spicy Green Chilies: 15-20 2. Garlic Cloves: 6-7 3. Salt: To taste (preferably rock salt) 4. Oil: 1 Tsp Method: 1. Preferably make this thecha in a cast iron pan. 2. Pre-heat the pan on high flame for couple of minutes. 3. Now put green chilies in it and dry roast it for 7-8 minutes or till it changes the color a bit. 4. Add 1 tsp oil to the chilies. Do not add oil in the beginning, otherwise the chilies will start bursting. 5. Roast the chilies in the oil for another 3-4 minutes. Put the flame to low. 6. Add garlic cloves and roast. 7. Add salt to it and roast till chilies and garlic change color and become little bit soft. 8. Transfer these ingredients to mortar pestle and start grinding it. If you don't have it, then put it in a mixie bowl and grind very coarse or just pulse couple of times. 9. Store it in an air tight container and keep in in the refrigerator for up to 8-10 days. Serve it with your choice of bread. Follow on social media:
