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!

Hi. Loved the recipe. Just wanted to ask which ingredient contributes to the presence of calcium in the thetcha recipe?

Tarla Dalal    Hi Ekta, Peanuts have 105 mg/cup and coriander leaves have 46 mg/cup of calcium, they contribute the presence of calcium in the thetcha.
