Mirch ka salan


Mirch ka salan is a famous Hyderabadi dish, whole green chilly stir fried and simmered in peanut and sesame sauce. It is usually a best combo with dum briyani. This spicy dish can be served with rice or roti. Originally it is made with long chillies available in India which are used to prepare fritters or bhaji. The long chilly will not be more hot compared to small ones. Mine was not spicy, so I added red chilly powder top of that. The best alternate for long chilly is Jalapeno.
