Kohlapur is a city in Maharastra state famous for non-vegetarion foods and spicy food. As a Maharastrian and vegetarian to share for spicy food lovers since Nandita announced to host JFI-Chillies. My mom and kakku used to make kohlapuri thecha specially for my baba and kakka.They are big fan of chillies. My baba will have atleast chillies plainly for extra spice. Zhanzhanith is a marathi word for extra spice.
When I was a kid I will stay away from spicy food and had a sweet tooth.But my tastes bud changes when I become a Mom for a kid. Day won't set without chillies that too after reading benefits of chillies.I am so fond of it.Ingredients

Pound all the ingredients together in a motar pestle.I never used readymade redchilli powder in my kitchen.This is a homemade chilli powder from my mom.
