Varhadi Bhurka – The Crunchiest Chutney ever !

Varhadi Bhurka is a super crunchy condiment , that can give a regular meal , instant texture and a spicy kick . The peanuts , sesame seeds and coconut , spiced with red chili powder, makes it a trademark Varhadi dish . A must try recipe for everyone with a spicy palate.

I belong to a family , which loves to eat and loves to cook too. And I am pretty serious about the cooking part . Almost everyone can put together a decent meal , if it comes to it . And “ everyone” includes my hubby and FIL too.

And everyone is a great appreciator of good food. Constantly on a look out for tasty recipes.

Yesterday my MIL came across one such recipe . She was reading a post shared by a friend on Facebook , describing this authentic Varhadi Bhurka. These people ( my in-laws) have a little soft corner for Varhadi recipes , that are characterized by lots of oil and red chili.

So reading about the recipe, was just enough for her. She had to make it ! She could already taste the flavors and crunch of the chutney in her mind.

The ingredients were pretty regular , so everything was available at home. So we got started immediately . Even the procedure was very simple, but the outcome was irresistibly awesome.

I know that this Varhadi Bhurka , is going to be a regular at my dining table from now on! We all loved almost everything about it , the crunch , the spicy kick and the flavors of perfectly roasted sesame seeds , peanuts and coconut.

You too give it a try and let me know how you liked it!
