Mirchi Ka Salan After Kumbakonam Kadappa and Mumbai Misal, its time to explore Hyderabad. Mirchi ka Salan is a popular dish in Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. Prepared with peanut, coconut, sesame seeds and tamarind juice, a curry  which is typically served as a side dish to aromatic hyderabadi biryani. But it can also be paired with any type of Biryani / Pulav / any Roti / paratha. Mirchi ka salan goes very well with any main course dish. I have tried to use minimum oil in this recipe.
  • The Chillies used are the big variety, less spicy ones.
  • 8 chillies slit and de-seeded
  • 1 medium sized onion finely cut
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind pulp
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 2 tsp oil

Welcome to my blog


February 10th is celebrated as World Pulses Day. I am an avid fan of whole pulses / lentils. When I took a review of my posts so far, I realised I have as of today posted 22 recipes using whole pulses & legumes. I decided to compile all those recipes and make an eBook that you can download from my site.
