Peanut Thecha

Day 16 BM #56 - 

As part of the Maharashtrian Thali, I had made this condiment to add some zest to an already comforting meal.

We make Peanut Powder with red chilies. But adding green chilies brought out a unique taste to this thecha, more like a dry peanut chutney :).

Ingredients - 

Peanuts 1/4 cup
Sesame Seeds 1 Tbsp
Dry Coconut Powder 2 Tbsp
Green Chilies 2-3
Garlic 2-3 cloves
Salt as needed

Peanut Thecha

Method Of Preparation -

In a heated pan, roast the peanuts, sesame seeds, chopped green chilies, garlic separately.

Grind all of them coarsely adding as much salt as needed.

Serve it with rice and Dal.

It stays fresh for a couple of days in the refrigerator.
