Last Sunday, we had sweets throughout the day (Ksheerannam from the temple, Moong Dal Halwa that I made, and Jalebis that Daddy bought). By evening, we were craving something spicy and so I thought of Hirvi Mirchi Cha Thecha. This spicy green chilly chutney is a great favourite in Maharashtra is typically eaten with Bhakri (a type of unleavened bread).
Beware that this is super spicy!
