How to Make Peanut-Green Chili Chutney |शेंगदाण्याचा-हिरव्या मिरचीचा ठेचा / खरडा
Hello Foodies,
          Peanut-Thecha (Peanut-Green Chili Chutney) is a mouth-watering side dish for Bhakri and Chapati(Indian Flatbreads). It is one of the authentic Maharashtrian recipes. It is hot and spicy and absolutely loved by every Maharashtrian family.


 There are many methods to prepare thecha or kharda. I made thecha with green chilies and peanuts. It tastes best and eaten sparingly with Jowar, Ragi, Bajra Bhakri, or Chapati(Phulka). There are different ways to make peanuts thecha; some people make it by adding onions, coriander leaves, coconut. I served Thecha as a side dish with the Ragi Bhakri, Tandulja Bhaji.
