Hmarcha Rawt/Mizoram Roasted Green Chilli Chutney

Post No.135

Next in our food journey is to Mizoram which is one of the states in the seven sister states. The recipe I chose today is a very spicy green chilli chutney from Mizoram.  It is a tangy and spicy chutney which locals of Mizoram prefer to have with their main dishes. I made a small amount of this chutney and this chutney tasted great with curd rice.  This would also tastes  great  with dosa or Roti.


10 Green chillies

1 finely chopped onion

1 tsp grated ginger

Salt to taste


Roast the green chillies in a pan in low flame until the skin is charred and darkened. Let the chillies cool a little.

In a blender add the roasted green chillies and salt. Grind it to a coarse paste without adding water. (you can also use a pestle and mortar to crush the green chillies)

Transfer this to a bowl and then add the grated ginger and chopped  onion and mix well.

Serve it with rice.
