Green Chilli Thecha Recipe
Green Chilli Thecha Recipe is easy to prepare. All you need is fresh green chillies , garlic , cumin seeds ,hemp seeds, peanuts and fresh coriander leaves. You may skip the coriander or can add mint leaves replacing that. But I personally love coriander in this Chutney. It complements well to the nutty flavour of hemp seeds.
Maharashtrian Thecha has many version. The main ingredients are Green Chillies garlic and cumin. The addition of hemp seeds uplifts the dish a level up. The crunchy texture and nutty flavour adds more flavour. You can reduce the quantity of chillies as per your preference. But when you say Thecha , it has to be spicy !
What is Hemp Seeds ?
Hemp is known to be one of the world’s best superfoods.
Hemp is from the Cannabis sativa family grown for industrial or medicinal use.
An excellent source of plant protein as they contain all nine essential amino acids. Provides a bevy of minerals and good source of both soluble & insoluble fibre !
They are rich in fatty acids including omega -3s and Omega-6s. A great source of Magnesium which is essential for a healthy heart. A hemp chutney is indeed a healthy choice for your family.
There are many brands available dealing with hemp seeds , hemp oil etc .But I trust Satliva for its superlative quality . They source from the foothills of the Himalayas. My recent discovery is their hemp chutney powder which is super delicious!!
Not only seeds , I have been using their hemp oil based skin products since 2018.
