Ingredients needed for Peanut Chilli Thecha – Green Chilli Peanut Chutney


Green chillies, garlic, roasted peanuts, salt, and oil. Perfect to be paired with roti or rice it is easy to make and can be used in different ways. 

Method for Peanut Chilli Thecha – Green Chilli Peanut Chutney

First, in a deep bottom pan or skillet, add in the green chillies on high heat. Also add in the garlic cloves. Further, cook, stirring often, until the skins char and blister all over. Turn them to get all the sides evenly for about 4 to 5 minutes.

Further add in 1/2 tsp oil and stir. Take out the garlic and set in a mortar and pestle or else it can burn quickly. Furthermore, let the green chilies’ blister for another 3 to 4 minutes. Add in the salt and mix well. Turn off the heat and transfer the green chilies’, to a mortar pestle and grind them coarsely, along with ground roasted peanuts. You can also  use a blender and grind for a few seconds, however, I prefer using a mortar and pestle. It provides more texture. Enjoy with roti, naan or thalipeeth.

Thecha  is on the high end of the heat scale because of the green chilies. If you prefer less spicy you can look for less spicy jalapenos and remove the seeds and ribs.

Instructions
 

  • In a deep bottom pan or skillet, add in the green chillies on high heat. Also, add in the garlic cloves. Cook, stirring often, until the skins char and blister all over. Turn them to get all the sides evenly for about 4 to 5 minutes.

Notes

I tend to dry roast peanuts and store them. You can dry roast them on a pan, wait for them to cool and grind them in a blender just before using them for thecha. you need 3/4 cup of peanuts after roasting and grinding. So basically, the powder needs to be 3/4 cup.
