Zhanzhanit Mirchi Thecha / Chili Garic Chutney

Zhanzhanit is a Marathi word which means extra spicy and Thecha means chutney made from green chilies and garlic. This is a Maharashtrian side-dish and people who love chili will  definitely like this thecha. Super spicy, flavorful ant perfect side dish for meal. Also it goes well with Jawari-bhakari, roti or chapati…whatever you want to enjoy it with!!  There are many different methods of thecha in maharashtra and I usually make this one..

  • 15-20 green chili
  • 8-10  garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • pinch of asafetida
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)


1) Heat the oil in a pan. Add asafetida, cumin seeds, green chilies and garlic.
2) Sauté it till they become soft and have brown spots on them.
3) Add the salt and switch off the flame, allow it to cool down.
4) Grind this mixture coarsely.

 Zhanzhanit Mirchi Thecha is ready to serve!

  • You can also add sesame seeds to this thecha.
