Trivia Tadka

Shengdanayacha Thecha is a coarsely pounded chutney-like mixture made with peanuts, lasoon and green chillies. Thecha is a condiment to spice up any meal, but is not too hot and goes well with any meal.  


  • Raw peanuts (shengdana) (1/2 cup)
  • Green chillies, chopped (2-4)
  • Garlic (lasoon), chopped (2-4)
  • Oil (1 tsp)


  • Heat the oil in a small pan. Add lasoon and green chillies and sauté for 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Add the shengdana and sauté till they turn crisp.
  • Keep on stirring to avoid burning them. They should just turn brown evenly. Crush this mixture into a coarse powder with a pestle and mortar.
  • Serve it as a condiment or with jowar roti or bajra bhakris.
