MIRCHI MURGI KA SALAN



MURGI MIRCHI KA SALAN (my way)

Mirchi ka salan (curry) is a traditional dish from the "City of Pearls" and divine Nizami cuisine. This peanuts and sesame based salan or curry is considered to be the most authentic accompaniment with biryani in Andhra cuisine and comes with many variations. Yes, you can make bhindi ka salan as well.
I wanted to make a salan that could be served with phulkas or paranthas or as a side with plain steamed rice and that's how the germ developed to cook chicken and chilli curry , the Hyderabadi way.
I had to tweak this traditional preparation a little bit so as to suit the typical Bengali taste buds, like the addition of jaggery, which you can omit. Secondly, I have added fresh coconut, as I personally feel it enhances the taste , but traditionally the recipe requires dry coconut.
Also , since it is not possible to get the Bhavnagri chillies here , I had to make do with the longish organic chillies which I ordered online.
Once in a while when you are in good cheer to make something exotic for the family , this dish could be given a thought.

And yes, nuts, sesame seeds, jaggery and lots of chillies make this recipe  iron and vitamin C,
