my husband is a big fan of biryani recipes and to be honest he prepares amazing veg dum biryani recipe. whenever we prepare any biryani recipes, salan gravy is a must recipe for him. however he does not like to prepare it and he mainly focuses on biryani. eventually it becomes my responsibility to prepare it. i frequently prepare bhindi ka salan as a side dish to biryani compared to mirchi ka salan as i find it less spicy compared to the later. i have already shared the bhindi ka salan but i was getting several requests for hyderabadi mirchi ka salan and hence i am sharing this post taking the recipe from my friend amita.

while the preparation is extremely simple, but few points for considerations for a perfect salan recipe. firstly, i always recommend to dee-seed the green chillies before using in the gravy. if you prefer to have a spicy then you may keep them, otherwise dee-seeding them is a wise option. secondly, and more importantly the consistency of the salan recipe is very important. mirchi ka salan recipe should always be competitively thicker and avoid making it watery.

finally i would like to highlight my other curry recipes collection and biryani recipes collection with this post. particularity, dum aloo, kadai paneer, malai kofta, bhindi masala gravy, soya chunks curry and matar paneer recipe. in addition do visit my other collections like,
