Mirchi Ka Thecha

on October 1, 2014

Thecha is vegetarian Maharashtrian food preparation. It is prepared crushing together green or red chilies, salt and garlic, oil/ghee and cloves may be added.

I came across this recipe in a food page in FB, And developed an instant liking towards it 😀 Couldn’t wait to go home and try this out, And well, it hardly takes some minutes !! And believe me, this is incredibly yummy 😛

I adapted this recipe from a FB friend Shobana Rao’s blog,


  • 15-20 medium spicy green chilies (hirwi mirchi)
  • ½ cup roasted peanuts (shengdana / moongphalli)
  • 7-8 garlic cloves (lehsun)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • Finely chopped coriander (kothimbir /dhaniya patta)leaves (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon oil for roasting green chilies


  • Heat 1tsp of oil in a pan, and roast the green chillies till it appears spotted
  • Add peanuts, coriander leaves, garlic and salt in green chilies and  pound it in wooden mortar or pestle or grind it for 4 – 5 seconds (not more than that). Thecha should be coarsely ground or pounded
  • You can serve it with rotis, parathas or even curd rice (Tastes yumm)
