MIRCHI KA SALAN

Mirchi ka salan is a hyderabadi delicacy which is generally made as an accompaniment for Biryani and can also be had with rotis and rice too. I wanted to try this Mirchi ka salan  for a long time and last week when i saw this bajji chiilies in the nearby Indian shop i picked it up to try out the Mirchi ka salan. I liked the taste of this and it went well with Vegetable biryani(will post the recipe later)

ONION 1
TOMATO 1
GINGER GARLIC PASTE 1 TSP

METHOD:

  • Wash and cut the slit the mirchis and take out the seeds from inside and cut them in lengthwise.

  • In a pan add2 tblsp of oil and saute the mirchi. Generally it has to be deep fried but i avoided deep frying. But shallow frying makes the mirchi shrink. So it is up to to you whether to make it deep fry or not.
  • Drain the excess oil in a kitchen towel.

  • In the same pan, add ginger garlic paste and when the raw smell disappears add the finely chopped onions. Saute till the onion turns golden brown. Add the chopped tomatoes and saute till they become mushy.
  • Allow this to cool and grind smoothly into a paste.

  • Roast the sesame seeds and grind this into powder along with peanuts,cumin seeds and coconut. Since i used roasted peanuts and kopparai(dry coconut) i didn’t roast it. and i forgot to roast the sesame seeds !!

  • Add oil to the pan and add the ground onion tomato paste to this. Saute for a few minutes in a low flame. Add the peanut masala to this and saute for a while.
  • Now  add the red chilli powder and saute well. Add 1/4 cup of water to this.

I love mirchi ka salan, but my family cannot take that much heat 🙁
Hence I prefer not making it . Wish I had a friend near by who could make this & offer it to me 😀
