Hirva mirchi cha thecha is a Maharashtrian style green chili chutney made with green chilies and garlic cloves. It is popular in state of Maharashtra. Dark green chilies and garlic cloves are steamed and crushed in mortar pestle. Hirva mirchi cha thecha chutney goes well with bajari bhakari. This combination is especially made during winters.

Recipe For Hirva Mirchi Cha Thecha


  • Fresh Dark Green Chilies - 15-20
  • Garlic Cloves - 10-15
  • Cumin Seeds (Jeera) - 1 tsp
  • Oil - 1 tbsp
  • Salt - to taste


  1. Cut the green chilies into 2 pieces. Just be careful that there should be no water.
  2. Take a iron kadai or tawa. Heat oil in it.
  3. Add the chilies and fry on low heat for 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add garlic cloves and cumin seeds (jeera) and again fry it till chilies and garlic changes colour. You will get strong blast, gust of chilli as and when when you keep stiring, be little careful.

  6. Switch off the stove and allow kadai to rest for sometime.

Note: While eating thecha, add extra sajuk tup (ghee) on bhakari so that you don’t get stomach burn.
