Spice it up 2

Sequel’s are in fashion in Bollywood and I don’t want to be left behind especially since most of the recent sequel’s have been hits!

This is a sequel to the Red Chili Chutney (Spice it up 1) Red Chili Thecha (Spice it up 2)

The Protagonist is the same- Fiery Hot Red Chili Pepper, the treatment is a bit different and the leading lady J has changed!From the mildly flavoured,sweet Onion now it’s the strong flavoured and pungent Garlic.And since it is Garlic, I have roasted it before making the Thecha!

So here’s one more recipe Red Chili Thecha to spice up the Valentine’s Day!

3 Red Chili Peppers washed and stems removed

3-4 bulbs small fresh garlic bulbs (I have used fresh green garlic as shown in the photo alternatively you can use 5-6 garlic cloves

2 tsp lemon juice

Salt as per taste 

For the Tadka:

1tsp oil

½ tsp Mustard seeds 

Roast the Chili peppers directly on a low Flame.(Pierce a fork in each Pepper and Roast it.) Similarly Roast the Garlic bulbs.If you don’t have the patience to roast each Pepper and garlic bulb chop the peppers and garlic bulbs and roast them in a pan with 1 tsp oil.Cool the peppers and garlic.Pound together the Red pepper and garlic to a coarse paste adding salt as required using a mortar and pestle. You can also coarsely grind it in a mixer. I prefer the taste using Mortar and pestle.Remove the Thecha in a bowl and add lemon juice. Mix properly and add the Tadka. (Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds)

Mix well and serve with Bhakri or Paratha or Roti. This Thecha can stay upto 1 month if refrigerated but then who wants to keep it for a month! J

Spice It Up

Hot is the word you think of when you see a Red Cocktail Dress.

Hot is the word you think of when you see Red chili pepper!

Both Red hot and both irresistible. 🙂

Freshly cultivated Red peppers are available in plenty this season and like I said I cant resist the neatly stacked slender and juicy Red hot peppers in the Foodmart.

When I bought the peppers I wasn’t sure what I would be doing with them!Yesterday when I was making Dosa I wanted to make a quick hassle free Chutney to serve with it and I saw these Red peppers lounging in my fridge.I just picked up an onion, some of these Red Chili peppers and ground them together adding a little salt. For some more flavour I added a tadka (tempering) of mustard and Curry leaves.

Voilà – Fiery Hot Red pepper Chutney was ready in a jiffy!

For the Red Pepper Chutney you need

2-3 Fresh Red Chili peppers washed and roughly chopped (You can increase the number if you are brave enough!)

1 onion peeled and sliced

Salt as per taste

For the Tadka:

1tsp oil

½ tsp Mustard seeds

Few Curry leaves 

Grind together the chopped Peppers and sliced onions with some salt without adding any water.

Add the tadka (tempering)- Heat oil in a small pan add the mustard seeds and once they crackle add the curry leaves. Add this over the Red Chili Pepper chutney. Serve with Dosa or use for sandwiching bread slices.
