Thecha is a very popular dry chutney from the state of Maharashtra. No meal in Maharashtra is complete without a little thecha. There are various kinds of thecha that are prepared, however the basic one consists of roasted and pounded garlic, green chillies, peanuts and coriander. It is best to prepare with the leftover sour dosa batter. We have added a healthy thecha prepared with almonds to the left over dosa batter to prepare yummy thecha paniyarams.

Serve the Thecha Paniyaram Recipe for kids lunch box or as a tea time snack with coconut chutney.
