Thecha (2)

Thecha is a popular chutney kind of a dish prepared mostly in the rural parts of Maharashtra. My Mother-in-law was brought up in Pune and later settled in Bangalore. She prepares a few traditional dishes of Maharashtra which she learnt during her stay in Pune. This is one such authentic and traditional dish which she still prepares as an accompaniment for chappathis. This is my hubby’s favorite combo for phulkas or chappathis. I learnt this recipe from her during my recent visit to Bangalore. If you like to have spicy chutney, I’m sure this one is the best.

Thecha (5) Ingredients:
  1. Green Chillies – 10-15
  2. Onion – 1, small
  3. Tomato – 1, small (optional)
  4. Garlic Pods – 12
  5. Oil – as needed
  6. Salt to Taste

How to Prepare:

  • Heat 1 tsp of oil in a pan and sauté each of the ingredients separately and set aside. When it’s cooled down, blend coarsely in a mixer and serve with phulkas or chappathis. Traditionally this is pounded with a mortar and pestle but I used a blender.
  • You can skip tomato in this recipe. This also tastes good.
