Mirchi Ka Salan, like many other Indian foods has a tangled history. Read on to know more about it.
If you have ever been to Hyderabad, you must have felt and seen the craze of Mirchi Ka Salan. We know the mention of Hyderabadi Biryani takes you on a decadent ride of the delicious melange of aromatic rice, succulent meat and tantalizing flavours of whole spices. But a true Hyderabadi Biryani aficionado can never imagine it without the rich, creamy and flavourful ‘better half’- Mirchi Ka Salan. The brilliant accompaniment of Hyderabadi Biryani has managed to stay true to its original taste and has gained worldwide fame. The delicious chilli and peanut curry has surpassed all the criteria of a good accompaniment in terms of flavours, textures and aroma. Made with green chillies, sesame seeds, peanuts, ginger and garlic paste, dry coconut, tamarind and some humble Indian spices, Mirchi Ka Salan deliciously compliments the exotic flavours of Biryani. Although the curry is fondly savoured by many people, very few know its origin.
