Green Chilli Chutney

This is the first time I made this green chilli thecha, by seeing the recipe of Chef Ranbeer Brar, as he added many spices in it. I added few simple spices according to our taste. This chutney is locally called hirvi mirchi cha thecha. 

The spiciness from the green chili peppers and the extra punch from garlic and peanuts made it an instant favorite. Since that day, I had tried it, it‚Äôs been our regular favourite chutney ūüė¨ I often make it at home to serve as a side dish, as it just¬†simply amazing with my everyday meals.

Spicy Green Chutney

You can use any varieties of chilli in this chutney. My chillies are so hot ūü•Ķ and spicy. You can use¬†light green variety of chilies that are milder in their spice level.
