Mirchi ka salan

                       This is one of the famous dish in hyderabad.. The ingredient which are used in this gravy is different and sounds intresting too. So far i have prepared gravy using coconut paste, cashew paste, onion paste, tomato and onion puree, but this one mainly prepared using groundnut n sesame seeds.This gravy goes well with roti or any indian bread. In hyderabad , they prepare this gravy as side dish for biryani.

Cover the pan and cook till the gravy get thickens up. Now add tamarind paste,mix and bring to boil. Finally add fried mirchi n stir it. Cook for 2 more minutes. Serve the gravy  as a side dish for biryani or any indian bread.


* Use kashmiri red chilli , it will give reddish color to the gravy and also less spicy. Else, use red chilli powder instead of red chilli.
* We can also use simla mirch(capsicum) instead of this one.
* We can also add tomato puree in the gravy,  if we don't like the taste of peanut and sesame seed.
