How to make Mirch ka Salan

  1. Wash and slit the chilies. De-seed and fry in oil. Or you could shallow fry in less oil, which is what I did! Drain and keep aside.
  2. For the dry masala, grind the roasted peanuts, sesame seeds and jeera to a coarse powder. Keep aside. For the gravy base, grind ginger, garlic, onion, tomatoes and fresh coconut to a paste.
  3. Heat 2 tbsps oil in a pan, add jeera, mustard seeds, methi seeds and curry leaves. Let them crackle. Now add the ground paste and stir well. Let it cook for about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add the dry masala mix to this gravy and stir again. Let it cook on a medium flame till oil starts to separate. Add 2 cups water, tamarind pulp and bring to a boil.
  5. Finally add the green chilies and capsicum , along with chopped coriander. Check for salt and let simmer on low till gravy thickens.
  6. Serve "hot" :)
