It has an amazing spicy, garlicky and nutty flavour which is useful for spreading in vada pav, toasts, sandwiches etc. This spicy, garlicky chutney can also be rolled with a plain chapatti or roti and eaten during snack time. This chutney is the most preferred accompaniment to Bhakri also.

Teeka chutney literally means a spicy dry spice mix powder which is a traditional Maharashtrian recipe especially available at most Mumbai street food stalls selling Vada Pav. This chutney is also popularly known as vada pav chutney.  Peanuts and coconut are important ingredients as they are freely available. Green chilies or red chilies are used for imparting their spicy flavor and taste.

Indian food is mostly rustic, simple and most Indian loves their piquant, sweet, tangy and spicy chutneys. In most interior villages of India, chutney is a must dish in everyday meals that is served as an accompaniment to the daily fare. Any dry chutney is of a big help as it’s easy to carry for lunch or picnics. In Western India, especially in Maharashtra, dry chutneys are more popular as peanuts is available in abundance, peanut chutney is popular among them. In Southern India, the dry chutney podis (powder) lik kandi podi (lentil spiced powder), curry leave powder, milagai podi, idli podi are commonly prepared at every home and eaten with soft steamy idlis or dosas. 

Vada pav is aptly a poor man’s breakfast, deep fried potato patties served between the pav bwith teeka chutney, sweet chutney is just mouth-watering and delicious. This has been one dish which is relished by all sects of people at Mumbai.

Peanut scientifically known as Arachis hypogaea is a species in the legume or bean family. Peanuts are almost abundantly used in various forms in most Maharashtrian dishes mainly for its buttery and nutty taste. Peanuts can be added to healthy sautéed chicken and vegetables or salads to give a nice crunchiness to the dish. Peanuts or ground nuts are used in various culinary purposes.

Coconut is the fruit of coconut palm available in India, Malaysia, South America, Hawaii and many Pacific Islands. Coconut is a vital ingredient in many types of cuisines and is used in various culinary uses. It provides oil for cooking and making margarine. The white, fleshy part of the seed, the coconut meat, is edible and used fresh or dried in cooking.  Dried, unsweetened coconut is made from the white meat of the coconut fruit. Dried coconut is commonly found grated and can be purchased year-round at most grocery stores. Dried coconut is naturally sweet with a mild yet distinctive flavor and is especially used in making a variety of chutneys, as topping, or added to curry dishes. Dry coconut imparts a nutty and oily taste to the chutney.

Sesame seeds are widely used in Asian cooking. They are tiny, cream coloured seeds which are tear drops shape. They have mild nutty flavour which is further enhanced on roasting the seeds. The roasted seeds are also used in flavouring several types of salads, raitas and dressings. They are one of the most prized ingredients while making a variety of korma gravies as it has a unique and distinctive flavour. It is one of the most versatile ingredients that are used in many dishes – sweet & savoury. They are added to breads including bagels and tops of burger buns and baked into crackers.  Natural Black sesame seeds are highly used in bakery products such as breads, bread sticks, cookies, candies, pasta, vegetables & curry dishes. Sesame seeds are generally used for making delicious starters and crispy coated food items such as cutlets and are also used to make homemade muffins and cookies. 

Garlic is said to be native to central Asia and also one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world that has been grown for over 5000 years. Garlic is a wonderful seasoning to add aroma, taste and nutrition to the dishes. Often few people do not like the smell or flavor of garlic. But they are losing out many benefits that we derive from garlic.  For garlic lovers, that's good news; adding garlic to dishes can punch up the flavour. Just about any form of garlic offers dieters many benefits. If you enjoy the taste of garlic, use it liberally in your food. Garlic is great for your health. Some of the garlic dishes are Garlic Toast, Garlic Pepper Meat Balls, Garlic Dal , Garlic chutney , Fish curry with garlic….
