Mirchi Thecha/ Mirchi Kharda/ Green Chilli Chutney


From Choco-Lava Cake to Mirchi Thecha...but dat's my tru taste now ;)
This one is really spicy &  not for all...but tastes awesome...& has always received compliments from Y ...he says..."as soon as I open my tiffin...this smell goes across the table...& all my colleagues know what is it..."
Its not the main dish though, but an accompaniment to the main course.
What matters most is the type of chillies being used for the preparation (the green & small ones) & the amount for which you saute the garlic....that adds the real value to this...
