Mirchi Ka Salan

mirchi ka salan

Mirchi ka salan is a hyderabadi delicacy and is an impeccable counterpart for Biryani and can also be had with rotis and white rice too. Most of the restaurants in Hyderabad would serve this along with Hyderabad Briyani.

I prefer to make hyderabad briyani for diet or health conscious guest for the fact that my hyderabad briyani is less spicy and also i sparingly add oil in it without any compromise on the flavor or taste and this side dish made of green chillies adds the required spiciness to the briyani and every spoon of briyani mixed with salan is truly blissful.mmmm…A perfect combo – hyderabadi briyani + mirchi ka salan + onion raita :-)Try it out!!


Green chillies – 8-10
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
¼ cup coconut – desiccated
1 onion – sliced
4 tsp tamarind water
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
1 cup curd
2 tsp oil
salt to taste
fresh coriander – for garnishing
