How to make Mirchi Ka Salan...

  1. In a cooking pot, heat oil.
  2. Add the curry leaves and the cumin seeds.
  3. Next add in the fenugreek seeds.
  4. Now add in the green chillies.
  5. Green chillies should be added whole with only the stem trimmed off.
  6. Shallow fry these on low flame for 15 minutes until a nice aroma emanates.
  7. Cover it up and handle very carefully.
  8. Prepare the masala and mix all the spices in it.
  9. Add this masala paste to the fried chillies and simmer.
  10. Do not stir it too much.
  11. Keep it covered.
  12. Let the masalas cook until the raw smell disappears for about 10 minutes.
  13. Lastly add the tamarind water to it.
  14. Cook it on high flame until it thickens.
  15. Keep it well covered as this might splutter.
  16. Handle this very carefully and adjust the thickness according to your own preference.
  17. Tamarind is added more because there are no tomatoes in this as baghare baingan, therefore tamarind adds a bit of sourness to this curry.
  18. Serve it hot as a perfect side dish to the all time hit dum biryani or even the plain rice. Plain rice also tastes yum with this salan.

My Tip:

Tamarind can be adjusted according to one's choice.

You can use poppy seeds dear Saba, actually it is added to give some thickness to the gravy along with taste.
