This chatpata dish is sure to add a lot of excitement to your meal! A classic Maharashtrian accompaniment, the Green Chilli Thecha goes best with Chawal Bhakri , Whole Wheat Bhakri and Jowar Bhakri and can be made in small batches and stored in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
A delectably spicy combo of green chillies, garlic, peanuts and coriander, the thecha can be ground in a mixer but will taste even better if you patiently crush it in a mortal-pestle!
- Heat a small non-stick pan, add the peanuts and dry roast on a medium flame for 3 to 4 minutes, while stirring continuously.
- Remove from the flame, de-skin the peanuts and keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the green chillies and mix well. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Add the garlic, and sauté on a medium flame for 1 minute.
- Allow the mixture to cool completely.
- Once cooled, combine all the ingredients and blend in a mixer to a coarse mixture.
- Store in an air-tight container and refrigerate.
- Use as required.
