Mirchi ka salan recipe

Mirachi ka salan
Mirachi ka salan

Every place is known for special dishes cooked and loved by people. Hyderabad is famous for its spicy, aromatic, flavourful and tastiest biryani dishes (Rice cooked with meat /vegetables and spices). Hyderabadi biryani is just heaven for foodies.I like everything about the biryani served in Hyderabad’ food joints. Biryani is served mostly with Mirchi ka salan and it tastes equally awesome. I decided to learn this spicy curry Mirchi ka salan which makes prefect combo with Biryani. When I tried it for the first time, it was absolutely disaster, but taste improved with number of trial and errors.

This curry/ salan  is made using fresh green chillies( it’s different type of chili which is big in size and less spicy/hot  in taste than  normal green chili). It’s made using selected spices and simmered in coconut, sesame and peanuts gravy. As name of the dish is “mirchi ka salan” sounds very hot and spicy curry, but actually it is not so. The ingredients like coconut, sesame and peanuts balance the spicy taste with nutty and sweet taste. And curry tastes excellent when cooked properly. Generally it is served with biryani but I like it with plain roti and rice also.
