A classic Maharashtrian accompaniment, the red 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 8 days.

Tips for red chilli thecha. 1. While buying fresh chillies look for shiny, deep red coloured, crisp and unwrinkled ones. 2. Try to pick out sturdy crisp garlic cloves which do not appear wilted, and you should also check for mold and mildew on the garlic too.

After trying this recipe of Thecha with Red Chillies, I realised that there are so many varities of Maharashtian cusiens which I have not yet tried...... Its a low calorie Thecha since we are not using Ground nuts. I can give this to my Father in law even though he is a high cholesterol patient.
