( Click picture for enlarged view )

I need not mention Mirch Ka Salan is a popular hyderabadi delicacy which compliments with biriyani. I had always wanted to prepare this salan, I got this recipe from vahrehvah video. I tried with pulav today and it was a nice combination. I hope you will all enjoy it too

Ingredients :

6-7 long green chilli(slit along the length on one side with tip intact)
3/4 cup chopped onions
1/4 cup peanuts
1/4 cup coconut powder
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp garlic ginger paste
1 red chilli
1/2 inch cinnomon sticks(2 no)
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 cumin seeds
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
1/4 tsp chilli power
1 pinch hing
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
5-6 methi seeds(fenugreek)
1.5 cup curd
1/2 tsp concentrated tamarind pulp(soaked in 1/4 cup water)
